SPARRING with both George Groves and Callum Smith inspired Kody Davies to move all the way down to super-middleweight. As an amateur the Welshman was a 91kgs heavyweight. Hardly fat before, he’s shed an astonishing amount of weight and muscle mass to weigh in at 171lbs for his last fight, a four round points win over Eric Mokonzo last Friday at York Hall.

“His record suggests he’s a journeyman, so to speak,” Davies said of a determined opponent. “I missed out on a few little opportunities.

“But it’s learning at the end of the day. I’d say I’m 70% happy with my performance.”
