JOHNNY GARTON has lost his British welterweight title after he was beaten for the first time in fourteen fights since April 2014. 

Garton lost to Chris Jenkins at the Royal Albert Hall, with judges scoring it 119-109, 116-112, 117-112 to the Welsh fighter.

Jenkins dominated from the opening bell, keeping Garton at a distance with his jab at the famous venue.

The 30-year-old Swansea fighter paid tribute to Peckham’s Garton, 31, who had won the belt by defeating Gary Corcoran last October.
