AN “adamant” George Davey insists that he won his drawn bout against Serge Ambomo.

The York boxing prospect’s six-rounder at the Telford International Centre was scored as a 57-57 draw by referee Michael Alexander.

The result saw Davey suffer the first blemish to his professional record, having won all of his previous five fights in the paid ranks.

He believes that the result was unjust though and felt that he had done enough to earn a sixth straight victory.

“I need to watch it back but I thought I won,” Davey said. “I thought that I was getting all of the clean shots off but I do need to watch it back.

“It’s to describe it really and I need to watch it back to get a better view of it. But I thought I won and I’m adamant that I won.

“But hats off to Serge, he came to win and obviously he’s come out with the draw.”

While Ambomo may have lost 29 of his 39 pro fights, the Cameroonian is no walk-over.

The African represented his home nation at the London Olympics in 2012 and has shared the ring with the likes of David Avanesynan, Ekow Essuman and Denzel Bentley, all of whom have gone to win major titles.

“He was a tough old cookie,” added Davey. “I was catching him with some good shots and he kept coming forward.

“It was all positive (for me) really. Maybe I got caught with a couple of silly shots but I thought I won.

“We all make mistakes in there but I thought that I was boxing the better fight.”

Elsewhere in boxing, York light heavyweight Michael Fafera is set for his first fight since 2019 when he boxes at the Elland Road Pavilion on Saturday, May 21.
