According to UKO Boxing, the 98-94 verdict was a little wide, but Welborn's performance more than warranted the decison.


"It was a good test and I got the win in,” Welborn told UKO.


“He's a good kid who pushed me, I knew he came to win, he wanted this fight and I knew he had trained for it. I tried to stick to my boxing, I gritted my teeth when he caught me and came back at him. I was picking my shots and enjoying it. I want to go on to bigger things at light middleweight now.”
