Amin Nadeem earned an impressive win over Oliver Lloyd at an army regiment event in Wakefield last Friday.

The show’s card comprised mainly of fights in which two army regiments boxed against each other but Amin travelled from the KBW Gym in Dewsbury to take on Lloyd, who was representing the 299 Parachute Regiment.

Amin drew blood early in the first round after some neat combination shots.

Amin came out aggressive at the start of the second, delivering some powerful body shots .

The referee had seen enough in the third to stop the contest to give Amin an impressive TKO victory.
