PENGE welterweight Bradley Skeete lost his bid for the European title against Spain’s Kerman Lejarraga at the Bilbao Arena in Bilbao on Saturday.

Bradley Skeete peppered Kerman Lejarraga with jabs in the opening round but never managed to unsettle the Spaniard. Lejarraga tore forward in the second round, rattling Bradley with lead lefts. He came inside and dashed a right hand to Skeete’s head, shaking him up and sending him down to the canvas.

The Spaniard rumbled forward and as Bradley moved off, a thunderous left hook to the body snatched the wind out of him and left Skeete on his knees.
