Lee Cutler, the flatmate and training partner of WBO cruiserweight champion Chris Billam-Smith, emerged victorious in a thrilling fight to become the English super-welterweight champion. However, his triumph was marred by a gruesome injury near the end of the bout.

A Relentless Aggressor

The fight, which took place in front of Cutler's home crowd in Bournemouth, saw the 27-year-old as the relentless aggressor. However, his opponent, Kingsley Egbunike, showcased a spear of a jab and clever counters.

A Horrific Cut

In the closing moments of the fight, Egbunike landed a precise shot that resulted in a gruesome gash above Cutler's left eyelid. Fortunately, with only a few seconds left on the clock, Cutler managed to secure a victory with fair scorecards of 96-95, 97-93, and 97-93.

Stitches and Celebration

After the fight, Cutler, accompanied by his Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) crowd, celebrated his victory. However, he had to forego a post-fight interview as he needed immediate medical attention to stitch up the oozing wound.

A New Team, A New Victory

Cutler's decision to relocate from the coast to London and join Shane McGuigan's gym proved to be a wise move. He switched trainers, leaving Kev Thorniley for Josh Pritchard, and received the support of both Pritchard and the McGuigan brothers during the fight.

Impressive Record

With this win, Cutler's professional record now stands at an impressive 14-1, while Egbunike's record is 8-3-1. Cutler earned his title shot by defeating Stanley Stannard at Bournemouth's Vitality Stadium back in May.

Conclusion

Lee Cutler's victory in the English super-welterweight championship was hard-fought, but his triumph was overshadowed by a gruesome injury. Nevertheless, he showcased his resilience and emerged as the champion. The future looks bright for this rising star in the world of boxing.
