Tony Milch Moves to 3-0

Welterweight Tony Milch is now 3-0 after a fourth round stoppage against Gareth Shove on November 21 at the Savoy Hotel in London, England. Milch, a 32-year old from Bushey, England, has been boxing since he was 13 years old.

As an amateur, Milch said of himself, "I wasn't great, but was pretty good," to JewishNews.co.uk. While in his mid 20s, Milch had a chance to go pro, but decided to move to Canada and become a trainer instead. In 2011, Milch felt he was ready to begin the steps necessary to turn professional.

Thus far, Milch has been successful against limited competition. In his debut, the lean and lanky righthander with the shaved head won on points against Danny Donchev in July. In September, Milch was busier against his defensive-minded opponent, Bheki Moyo, who hadn't won a fight in 63 tries when the two met. Milch cruised to another points win.

Milch is scheduled to fight in January and February. Nicknamed "Two Guns Tony," Milch hopes to fight for a British or Commonwealth title by the time he hangs up the gloves.
