TYLER DENNY set about his ambitions of rebuilding a path towards national honours with a long-haul fight in the bag.
The left-handed middleweight relinquished the Midlands title before going into battle, after an unsuccessful tilt at the English crown last year. The man who thwarted him under the same Town Hall lights, Reece Cartwright, was in attendance to cheer him on.
Denny recorded an eight-round points whitewash (80-72) over the tough Serge Ambomo, who stood firm even when the pace was upped in the last two rounds. Michael Alexander officiated.
