Fighting for Great Britain, Reynolds secured silver in the 75kg middleweight section when he was victorious against a Swedish opponent in the semi-final.

That set up the gold medal bout against Finland’s AIBA European Olympic qualification event quarter-finalist Ilari Kujala.

There, the Lutonian used his effective jabs to triumph and tweeting afterwards, said: “Gold for the mother! Happy Mother’s Day, top of the podium the medal coming home to England straight to my town!

“Thanks for the support family, friends, sponsors & coaches. Another step in the right direction.”

Ex-Luton fighter, Billy Schwer also took to Twitter to say: “Many congratulations my man. Well done champ. Keep the Luton flag flying.”
