Teenage amateur fighter Toro Croft doused the flames to beat Moss Side Fire Station Boxing Club’s J. Johnson.

The 13-year-old, who represents Ribble Valley ABC, started the new season with victory following an impressive display at Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground in Manchester.

Coaches Mohammed Sarfraz, Mohammed Ihsan and Mohammed Sirtaj said: “This was Toro’s first fight of this boxing season and he started it off with a fantastic display of boxing skills.

“He danced around the ring and picked his opponent off using his hand speed and well timed, accurate punching.

“Toro always shows great dedication in training and we see him putting a lot of hard work and effort into every session he does.

“He is definitely one to watch out for in the future.”
