A BRADFORD professional boxer has admitted he "didn't get out of first gear" after maintaining his unbeaten record at a showcase event.

Amin Jahanzeb went into battle under the banner of boxing management company MTK Global - who count Tyson Fury and Billy Joe Saunders among their ranks - for the first time.

The Bradfordian struck victory with a unanimous decision after four rounds against Jack Pollard in the Featherweight division.

There was never any doubt as to the outcome in the eyes of Jahanzeb who, at one point, calmly dodged a punch with ease before seemingly taunting his opponent by pausing and staring at him (see below).

He said: "To be honest, it wasn't a challenge.

"I've been asking for a really good opponent to fight, but sometimes they're just not available.

"When opponents don't come to fight I can't show my skills. It takes two to tango.

"If you fight a negative opponent, with those kinds of opponents I don't really get out of first gear."

The bout was part of the undercard for headline fight between Hosea Burton and Edgars Sniedze at the University of Bolton Stadium.

With the whole event being live-streamed online, Jahanzeb said it was a good platform to showcase his boxing prowess to a different city and audience.

Not only that, the boxer was pleased to do his city proud.

He said: "I'm carrying Bradford everywhere I go, whether it's in Bradford, Leeds, Sheffield.

"Everyone knows I come from Bradford. There's a few good fighters from Bradford, but I'm the main one putting us out there."

Jahanzeb now boasts a professional record of four out of four, with of those victories coming courtesy of a knock-out.

The Bradfordian wants to go global and admits being World Champion is the aim. But he won't rush headlong to get there.

He said: "After this fight, I got back into the gym the next day.

"I love boxing and I'm just looking forward to the next one.

"Hopefully I'll have a fight in the next two months.

"I'm taking it step by step and we'll see what we can do."

Mohammed Ali, coach at Bradford Police Boxing Club, described Jahanzeb's performance as sensational.

He said: "He really outclassed his opponent and the referee was at one point going to stop the fight.

"Amin was too skilful, too powerful for the opponent."

A crowd of around 100 Bradfordians made the trip to Bolton to support the pro, says Ali, and he believes Jahanzeb's exploits are helping to spur on a new generation of boxers.

He added: "It's absolutely amazing. This is what we need.

"This is a boost for all the boxing clubs. I've been with him since he was 10-years-old.

"He's showing there is the opportunity out there."
