SUTTON-In-Craven's Charlie 'Hammer' Darkins (Sandygate ABC) competed at the Eastburn ABC boxing show at Bradford's Valley Parade matched against South Yorkshire's M Yafai (Witters ABC).

Keeping centre from the opening bell, Darkins controlled proceedings, keeping centre and forcing his foe onto the back foot, making great use of his reach advantage and contacting frequently off his lead hand jab.

Each two-minute round saw a domineering display from the 'Sutton Slugger' going into each round ahead on the judges score cards.

It was no surprise to the sell-out crowd when the South Craven Year 10 pupil's hand was raised as the victor by the referee with a unanimous verdict from the ringside judges.
