Abusin’s Muay Thai Boxing Club are celebrating after Samir Ortiz scooped his second major title.

After claiming the British Junior belt earlier this year, the 16-year-old Bradford fighter took home the Celtic championship in Blackpool.

He fought alongside fellow gym members Shehroze Butt and Ferenc Horvath, with Horvath also recording a victory at the event, with Butt losing narrowly on a points decision.

It completed a busy month for the Kyme Mill, Johnson Street gym’s fighters, as Al Harris Hussain made his debut at C class level at Haydock Park racecourse in St Helens the previous week.

Unfortunately, Harris lost on a controversial points decision to a tough and more experienced fighter.

Trainer and gym owner Alex Abusin was proud of his fighters’ efforts. He said: “We’ve had some really good success. They were two brilliant wins this weekend from our guys.

“Samir did really well to take the British title earlier on this year and to now take the Celtic belt is just fantastic for him and the gym.

“Samir, Frank, Sheroze and Harris are all different style of fighters but all those styles complement them really well and they push themselves to the absolute limit.”
