Storey beat Jo Maya of Small Holdings ABC, who was five years his senior and had an unblemished record before meeting Luton’s dangerous southpaw.

The victory means a clean sweep of wins for Storey under the tutelage of new coach Sean Murphy at Finchley ABC.

As well as this, he is beginning to demonstrate a maturity far beyond his 18 years, as he said: “In the first 30 seconds I caught him with about three lefts. He couldn’t come forward so I was just counter punching him.

“I had to use my ring craft well, and draw him on to my shots.”

Having finished a successful season, his next stop is an international sparring camp in Spain, as Storey added: “I’m really excited to get out there, I know it will be a tough week but it’s all experience for me for the new season.”

A lot depends on what happens in the next few months, if we join England Boxing I would love to fight in the Haringey Box Cup next year.”
