March, took on two-time champion Kyle Parr in Manchester after making his way through to the final.

Despite a solid second round, Parr’s class showed and he claimed a unanimous points decision win.

Harris’ coach Stewart Lorains was quick to praise his boxer for his efforts.

“Since coming to the gym, Reece has improved 1000%,” said Lorains.

“It was a close fight, Reece had a shoulder injury and had waited around all day for the fight too as we were last on.

“The kid came out strongly in the first and Reece took a standing count, but he bounced back well and could’ve nicked it.

“Thank you to all his coaches, particularly Rob Layton.”
