KODY Davies’ options “are all open” after ending Zak Chelli’s unbeaten record in their British light-heavyweight title eliminator at York Hall on Saturday night.

Pontllanfraith’s Davies was put down for the first time as a professional but did enough to claim a unanimous points victory (96-94, 96-93, 97-92).

In winning, the 25-year-old, who had close friend Joe Calzaghe at ringside for support, maintained his own unblemished run in the paid ranks.

He made it 10 straight wins to put himself in pole position for a shot at the Lonsdale Belt recently vacated by his former GB Boxing sparring partner Joshua Buatsi.

But Davies could switch back down to super-middleweight, where the British belt is also vacant.

Speaking after the fight about his options, he said: “The world’s our oyster. Me and Gavin (Rees, trainer) are going to sit down with Sam (Jones, manager) and see what’s next.

“The options are all open at super-middleweight and light-heavyweight.

“I’ve proved myself at super-middleweight already.

“I’ve sparred with some of the best in the world and put one of them on their backside, so I know I can mix it there.

“I’ve stepped up to light-heavyweight and won the British title eliminator.

“I’ve sparred with Buatsi for years on Team GB and I have all the respect for him, he’s a very strong boy.

“We had some good sparring together so I know we can take positives from that as well.

“The world’s our oyster, light-heavyweight or super-middleweight, I don’t want to rush into anything.”

On the fight, he added: “I got tagged early on. I pretended I tripped over, but I didn’t trip over, I got caught and I thought I needed to change something.

“I could see Zak fading, and it takes something mentally to see when somebody is on the fade.

“I knew I was going to catch him sooner or later. I probably messed around a little bit too much, but that’s just what I do.”

Davies’ victory made it the perfect weekend for Gwent boxers with six wins out of six.

On Friday, Risca’s Jake Tinklin and St Joseph’s quartet Robbie Vernon, Lloyd Germain, Joshua John and Jordan Withers all secured points successes on the Sanigar Events show in Swansea.

For John and Withers it was the ideal start to their professional careers, the former beating Nicaraguan Jose Aguilar 40-36, the latter seeing off Sussex’s Liam Griffiths by the same scoreline.

Tinklin (4-0), Vernon (4-0) and Germain (2-0) all maintained their unbeaten records against Lee Hallett, Chris Adaway and Adam Bannister respectively.

St Joes’ Lance Cooksey (10-0) faces Aguilar at the Vale Sports Arena on Friday, while Newport’s Craig Woodruff (7-5) takes on Nicaraguan Lester Cantillano.
