The 25-year-old sharp-shooter, originally from Bideford, stopped Mexican opponent Julio Cesar Avalos in the fourth round at the National Stadium in Irelands capital city. Its a great title to get and its my first one as well, said the newly-crowned champ. It puts me in the world rankings so its a great start and Im really looking forward to the next one now. Langford started well and, after landing some vicious shots in the fourth, he had Avalos in real trouble. Pinned on the ropes, Avalos seemed dazed after another head shot from Langfords left hand. With his opponents back to the ropes, Langford unleashed a series of vicious head shots, the final blow a straight right that nearly took the Mexicans head off. Referee Steve Grey stepped in with less than 20 seconds of the fourth round remaining. The stunning victory means that Langford closes in on the top ten in the British rankings, and his first pro title also gains him a place in the WBO world rankings. Im not going to be calling out anybody or jumping in and chasing after anything too silly, he said. I want to keep learning my craft, do more defences and gradually increase the calibre of opponents. Ive still got a lot to learn because I havent gone six rounds yet.
