Lynes tames Muttley
When Colin Lynes retired on his stool after 9 rounds against Lenny Daws in a British title eliminator at the beginning of last year his future as a boxer looked bleak. As he sat on his stool at the end of the fight literally bing sick on his stool he mist have wondered if his career as a championship level performer was over, but he has rebounded brilliantly firstly by defeating the tough Scottish British champion Barry Morrison and now in beating the dangerous Young Muttley in a vacant European tilt.


Lynes overcame the odds to take the British championship on away turf against Morrison and he was at it again on Friday night as he totally dominated Young Muttley after coming into the fight on a fortnights notice following Ted Bami's decision to vacate the title. It must suit Lynes to fight on his opponents turf as he has now turned in impressive and dominating displays in successive fights.



Lynes completely dominated the hometown favourite behind a beautiful and accurate left jab. He slowly increased the tempo as the rounds wore on adding in hurtful right hands and some thumping bodyshots.


By the 8th Muttley looked a bewildered and weary fighter and he was wobbled and cuffed to the floor from a right hand follwed by a combination..he took the referee's count and continued but he was a beaten fighter and Lynes jumped all over him to smash him the canvas again. This time the referee jumped in without even bothering to count. Muttley may have got up but he was finished in the fight and the referee recognised this.


So Lynes is now a double champion with the European crown added to his British title and put simply is lookin to be in the best form of his career. His father has been suffering with an industrial lung disease and the affable and down to earth Lynes has seemed to draw inspiration from this.


Could a world title shot against the newly crowned WBA champ gavin Rees be made perhaps?
