The North End boxing talent shone as he proudly stepped up to fight for England Universities as the squad travelled to Miami.

Singh found himself on the wrong end of a controversial points-decision loss to his American counterpart.

Just how debatable that called proved to be was shown as the 26-year-old was named the best boxer of the show. Singh savoured the experience, however, with hopes high of making an impact in the national championships at Poseidon ABC.

He was also given an insight into life in the pro ranks as part of his Stateside trip.

With David Haye preparing for his fight with Tony Bellew tonight in Miami, the Stuart O’Connor-trained talent got to see the heavyweight’s work at close quarters.

And there was the added boost of getting to meet Luke Campbell, who defeated Jairo Lopez last weekend.

Singh was also given the unforgettable chance to be taken on the pads by Campbell’s hugely-respected trainer Jorge Rubio

Singh’s father, Ricky, explained it all amounted to an experience the boxer will never forget.

He said: ‘Terry really enjoyed himself.

‘He never lost the fight, no way. And being named boxer of the night proves a lot.

‘And he loved meeting Luke Campbell and his trainer. He said they were lovely people.

‘Now he’s out to do well in the championships.’
