A BRADFORD boxing club have fought to gold galore at an event in Hull.

Rourkey's Gym travelled to East Yorkshire for the Hull Box Cup and came away with six gold and one silver medal.

The West Bowling-based gym entered eight boxers for the cup and their efforts earned them the "Best Club of the Tournament" Award.

Bouts took place across multiple days, starting with quarter-final rounds.

Alfie Rourke was one of those in action on day one for a fight against Badshah Sing from Clovenstone Gym.

The youngster's opponent made it difficult, but Rourke dug his heels in to win on unanimous decision.

That then set up a semi-final bout the next day against the reigning Scottish Champion from Irvine Vinebrugh Boxing Club Mason Salmon.

Rourke beat the odds though, making use of his jab to win on a split decision and setting up a final against Jaylen Howell.

The Bradford boxer ran to a comprehensive victory in that bout, securing top-spot in the Minors 32kg category.

There was one girl, Macie Kaye, who competed for Rourkey's at the event.

Kaye entered the Female Junior 46kg classification and came up against Frances Heath in the final, who has a knack for coming forward.

In the end though, Kaye's grit and determination allowed her to fight to a unanimous victory.

Rourkey's most inexperienced boxer, Joel Mooney, came up as underdog against Pinewood Starr's Billy Connors.

Mooney pushed the favourite for the bout all the way, but lost out on a split decision meaning he fell just before the medal round.

There was also heartbreak for Quie Coleman.

He made it all the way to the final in the Schoolboy 36kg category, but had to settle for silver after his opponent Jimmy Doherty ran to a unanimous victory.

Both Michael Brooke and Patrick Coleman stormed their way to gold medals.

The pair received unanimous decisions in each of their semi-final and final rounds to bag the silverware, with Brooke also getting the vote of the judges in his quarter-final bout.

Brooke first came up against an imposing Luidas in the Male Youth 69kg category, who had stopped his opponent in the previous round.

Despite this mental hurdle, Brooke took it in his stride to win the bout 3-0, before out-boxing and controlling the pace in the final against Irish fighter Peter Clarke.

Coleman enacted revenge in his semi-final, beating Callum Drinkald of Wearmouth Boxing Club, who he lost to in the National Finals a few months ago.

An emotional Coleman then channelled his spirit into the final against Sonny Shepherd.

The other gold medals came for David Mooney and Billy Hughes, who won their finals on split decisions.

Rourkey's now have one more box cup to compete in before taking a break.
