The highly-rated fighter, managed by Mervyn Turner from Shamrock Boxing and coached by Paul Day and Paul Webber beat a tough Bulgarian opponent at the Bedford Corn Exchange earlier this month.

Popular Lauren, who does a large amount of work in the community, outpointed Rozmari Silyanov to remain unbeaten to remain an impressive third in the UK rankings.

Speaking to CometSport Lauren said: “I do 12 week programmes with the lads and so far it has been a complete success. It has had a massive impact on confidence and behaviour. It’s great to pass my love for the sport onto others.”
