Nunn was up against Corey McLachen, a junior world champion who went into the encounter with over 100 wins to his name!

The contest was fought out at the Doncaster Dome and Nunn was a convincing winner of the 57kg category fight, bagging a TKO during the fifth round and now replaces McLachen as the number seven ranked fighter after his win in what was only his eight fight as an amateur!

Jack says: "That's three successive wins against higher ranked opponents.

"The path ahead is now very clear to me. I aim to carry on working my way up the rankings as far as one day, fighting for a world title."
