Webb is looking sharp
TOBIAS Webb has been to The Smoke in an attempt to restore the fire to his boxing.
The 24-year-old super- middleweight, topping the bill on the show at the Oceana in Swansea on Friday night, lacked his usual polish when beating Surrey scrapper Darren McKenna last time out.
But, according to his manager Paul Boyce, a spell training in London has helped Webb rediscover the edge that made him one of the most exciting prospects in Welsh boxing.
"He's looking very good," said Boyce.

"We took him to one of the top gyms in London and he worked with some of the best guys there. It's just restored a bit of crispness to his boxing, the sharpness that he is known for.
"I think he'd accept that he wasn't at his best in his last bout. He was never in danger of losing, but he had fought just once in 15 months before it and so was understandably rusty.
"We're expecting him to be better on Friday.
"He's fired up and looking for a good performance."
Webb is taking on Jody Meikle, a hard-working fighter from Scunthorpe, who has packed 27 fights into the 18 months since he left the amateur ranks.
Meikle has yet to set the world alight as a pro, but he is a willing performer who doesn't fold easily.
"He has been in with some decent boxers and made them all work hard," said Boyce.
"It will be a good test for Tobias. Meikle keeps his opponents honest — it will take a lot to stop him."
Also on the bill are Chris Jenkins, Chris Ware, Greg Pickin, Darren Bushbye and Leon Finlay.
