The rather relevantly named ‘The Upsetter’ Ovill McKenzie lived up to his name as he won the cruiserweights Prizefighter tournament on Tuesday evening.
The 29-year-old was only called in to take part in the competition two weeks ago, but that didn’t stop him from three consecutive victories and claiming the £25,000 prize fund on an eventful night at Earl’s Court.
With favourite Dean Francis going down to runner-up John ‘Buster’ Keeton in the first round of their semi-final, it was a final featuring two big outsiders.
And it was the originally priced 25/1 shot McKenzie that showed the greater ring skills and who won the competition on points.
“This is the moment of my life,” McKenzie told Sky Sports 1.
“I’m very proud of myself going in there and doing the business. I’m The Upsetter and I’m back.
“These guys are big so I just used my skill and my lightness to deal with them, go through the rounds, duck in and out and take it to them to win.”
