Sabden’s North West CYP champion Reece Farnhill, 18, faced Dudley’s J. Shakespheare (Lions ABC) in a 69kg three-round contest at The Hollywood Club in the Midlands.

The impressive teenager’s height advantage was apparent, with his long lead penetrating Shakespeare’s guard.

Sandygate ABC fighter Farnhill switched from body to head with rear hand hooks, with Shakespeare warned for holding repeatedly.

The third round saw a relentless barrages from Farnhill, and the verdict was never in question, earning a unanimous verdict.
