England Select coach Mick McGuire said that Kai boxed superbly in a close-fought bout which could have gone either way, unfortunately on this occasion Kai lost on a points decision.

Stratford head coach Mat Pickering said: “I am extremely proud of Kai, he has come such a long way in a short period of time and he should feel proud of his achievements this season. The club can’t wait to see what he has to offer next season.”
