Barker wins British middleweight title

Barnet Gazzette1st December, 2009

Barnet boxer Darren Barker picked up the British middleweight title with a stoppage win over late substitute Danny Butler.

Butler stepped in after original opponent Wayne Elcock had to pull out of the event at the Brentwood Centre due to illness.

And Barker, unbeaten as a pro, proved far too strong for the stand-in, the fight being stopped in the seventh round.
