Broughton Settling In

Mykey-Lee Broughton reckons he’s settled in the pro game after noticing a stark contrast in the two of his pro victories.

His journey continues at the Eastside Rooms, on Woodcock Street in Birmingham, as part of a Friday fight night that’s set for September 30.

The 21-year-old Brummie, from Acocks Green, resumed his paid career, 10 months on from his debut, with another points whitewash win in July.

With new coach Anthony Manning in his corner for the first time, Broughton eased to a landslide success over Fonz Alexander, through a 40-36 scoreline after the final bell.

The same verdict was recorded on his 2021 debut, where he shut-out Jamie Quinn across the Midlands at Rollerworld in Derby, with Asgar Tair training him then.

Broughton is transitioning from his amateur grounding, where he amassed 30 victories from 33 bouts representing Birmingham City Boxing Club and later O’Dells.

He’s delighted to be back in action on his home turf, having been buoyed by the reception received when he boxed in Birmingham for the first time, as a pro.

Broughton said: “I’ve kept at it, I was straight back in the gym after my last fight because I want to keep the momentum going. I’m getting better, all of the time.

“It was a much better performance, last time, than my debut. The first time, I boxed the other lad’s head off, but I still had that amateur style about me, which is too tippy tappy.

“I felt like more of a pro, the second time around, and I’m hitting a lot harder, because I was sitting down on my shots. Hopefully, I’ll get a stoppage soon enough.

“My opponent was tough and durable and he tried to have a go, but I stopped him from doing anything positive. I dealt with the situation well.

“After such a long lay-off, it was good to be back and now it’s about getting me up the rankings. Whoever is in my way, I’ll get them out of my way.

“This is another opportunity to showcase my skills and I love boxing in Birmingham. It’s made a difference and gave me that extra bit of buzz.

“The support that I get is a big help to me and gives you that extra push. It’s pressure, but good pressure. I’m also there to do a job, though, and I’ll get the job done.”
