The event, which has been running for 40 years, was held at the Burgess Hall and helped to raise thousands of pounds for the host club, as well as other good causes in Huntingdonshire.

The Rotary Club of Huntingdon Cromwell helped organise the show, which featured 13 bouts involving young boxers from all over East Anglia, including Peterborough,

Trumpington, and March.

There were successes for home fighters Imraan Shirazi and Daniel Henson, against Josh Tanner (March BC) and Josh Loosemore (Grantham BC) respectively.
