Swanley's Sam Webb loses bid to reclaim British light middleweight title with points defeat to Blackpool's Brian Rose

17 December 2012

Challenger Sam Webb failed to reclaim the British light middleweight title after losing on points to Brian Rose on Friday night.

Rose successfully defended his crown in front of his home crowd in Blackpool, claiming a unanimous points victory.

Swanley-based Webb, pictured, may now quit the sport, having fought 21 times in a largely successful professional career. The 31-year-old won 18 of those bouts.

He clinched the British title himself in 2010, before losing it in his third defence a year later to Prince Arron.

A comeback victory against hard-hitting Matthew Hall prepared him for a fight against Rose at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens but the judges scored the contest 116-113, 116-113, 116-112 in favour of Rose.
