We cannot wait to see what he accomplishes next!”
Bevan spoke on the competition and his hopes for the future:
“It felt amazing winning and was a bit of a relief as I’d already beaten the English Champion earlier in the season, so I’m happy I could prove myself again. I stuck to my game plan and came out on top. I’m now moving up a weight class, hopefully building up to the European Championship in September.”
