“This was Worksop’s first ever worldwide live televised professional boxing event so to do it in the style we have, getting six wins out of six and another European title for the stable in Hollie Towl is the icing on the cake.

‘Hollie’s European title fight between was such a great fight and worthy of top of the bill on any card anywhere.

“It was just fantastic boxing by both girls who were fully committed to winning the title.

“I’m so full of both praise and belief in my blonde bomber Hollie as she is only 18.

“She is already a five times national amateur champion and now 6-0 as a professional boxer. Holding world and European honours is something special and we are all very very proud but she’s gonna go so far and do so much more so watch this space.

Town said: “It was so tough, but I loved every second there.

“To share a contest like that with Nadia, who’s a class act and unbeaten, is what I’ve been crying out for as I don’t normally do overtime there.

“The rounds are priceless for me and this crowd is just the best for me every time.

“I’m just enjoying my training and my ring time at the minute so I feel blessed to do something I love and get paid to do so.”
