A host of top young boxers from clubs across the region were on show at the Rotary Club of Huntingdon Cromwell’s annual boxing and dinner show.
The event, which took place on Friday, was held at the Burgess Hall, in St Ives, and saw a host of fighters, ranging in age from 10 up to 25, climb between the ropes for a night of competitive boxing.
The night was supported by Cambridgeshire Constabulary Amateur Boxing Club (CAMPOL), based in Huntingdon, and Peterborough Police Boxing Club.
There were four inter-club bouts between fighters from the two host clubs before the hosts took on boxers from clubs including Stevenage, St Neots-based Saints, All Comers, Linford, and Bracebridge.
Chris Baker, of Peterborough Police Boxing Club, said: “We thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Everything ran smoothly, there was a really good atmosphere and it was good chance for the young lads to get some experience.”
