TWO young fighters from Alpha Boxing Club, Hemsworth, will be making their debuts in the ring tonight, Friday, at Kellingley WMC, Knottingley.

Dwayne Watson and Tez Benson, both 18 years-old, will fight at 66kg in bouts against Scott Cutforth (Phoenix, Notts) and Luke Frost (Billericay) respectively.

The Hemsworth duo will be joined on the bill by three fighters out of White Rose Boxing Club, Wakefield.

Tom Sowerby, 13, and Jordan Pickup, 12, both fight opposition from Billericay, Sowerby taking on Nathan Lucas at 42kg and Pickup facing G Stevens at 39kg.

Nineteen year-old Scott Stevens, at 75kg, completes the White Rose contingent with a contest against West Leeds’ Anthony Wainwright.

Sowerby goes into his fight fresh from an impressive majority decision in Hull last weekend, when he defeated Scarborough’s Connor Osbourne to take his record to four wins from five fights.
