Colin Jones v Kirkland Laing


Highlights from Colin Jones' two fights with Kirkland Laing, classic bouts of boxer v puncher.

They first met at Wembley Conference Centre in April 1980 with Laing's British welterweight title on the line.

He was a mile ahead on points when a devastating right from the 21-year-old Jones settled the bout in the ninth.

Their rematch at the Royal Albert Hall the next year followed a near-identical pattern, Jones' finishing left in the ninth round proving even more devastating.
