Lancaster Boxing Academy started their new season with a bang as three young fighters were victorious in Blackburn.

Troy Gallagher, Bob Rowntree and David Jowett Jnr were all winners at the Beechwood Club in East Lancashire.

At 14, Gallagher was the youngest of the boxers from the White Lune gym to make the trip and he gave up both weight and experience to opponent Aaron Egan.

After a close first round the Lancaster fighter found his range in the second before picking his FIT2XL Boxing Club adversary in the third and final round to get the unanimous decision.

Rowntree also got his hand raised after three hard rounds against Omar Osman.

The 18-year-old took his time against another FIT2XL fighter before scoring at will in the final round to get the decision.

Jowett Jnr was making his return to the ring after three years away against local favourite Brandon Riddell, also from the FIT2XL club.

He had his hand raised after the final bell to complete a great night.

The club hold their first show of the season at the Trimpell Club on Out Moss Lane this Friday, October 4.
