Pryce defeated by champion Arron

The Prizefighter light-middleweights

Bradley Pryce took a heavy beating from eventual champion Prince Arron in the semi-finals of the Prizefighter light-middleweight tournament in London.

Event favourite Pryce, 28, had claimed a hard-fought revenge points win over Neil Sinclair in the first round.

But the lanky Arron eased to a points win, using his superior reach to telling effect at the York Hall.

Droylsden's Arron, 22, went on to outpoint Birkenhead southpaw Brett Flournoy in the final.

606: DEBATE

"All respect to Bradley Pryce, he was a really good fighter but maybe he is on his way down and after the first round I was beating him up," said the 6ft 3in Arron.

"It's absolutely out of this world. I came here to win it and after beating Bradley I knew I'd got the competition won.

"Brett was a bit awkward with his southpaw stance, but in the third round I came to life and got the victory."

The innovative, one-night tournament saw eight men competing in four quarter-finals of three rounds. The winners advanced to the semi-final and then the final, each bout over three rounds.

Flournoy beat previously unbeaten Londoner Steve O'Meara on a split decision in his semi-final.
