Jamie Takes His Chance
World Title fight now beckons after Cox blasts his way to WBO European title
Swindon's Jamie Cox only took 134 seconds to put himself in the frame for a World title tilt next year.
The south paw stopped Swiss fighter Blas Miquel Martinez at Wembley tonight after a first round barrage to the body and head saw him dramatically secure the WBO European Super-Middleweight belt and a place in the world top 15.
We caught up with Jamie just before the bout. See our interview below.

Swindon's Jamie Cox faces one of the biggest tests of his boxing career on Friday evening as he takes on Swiss fighter Blas Miguel Martinez.
The winner will become the WBO European Super-Middleweight Champion, with the chance to fight for a world title later on this year.
Cox, who won gold at the Commonwealth Games in 2006 and has an undefeated professional record of 18-0, has been training hard in London and Las Vegas, where he sparred with - and impressed - former world champion Saul Alvarez.
The fight is live on Box Nation.
We caught up with Jamie ahead of what he describes as 'the opportunity I've been waiting for'.
