Kory Harkin got a hard-fought win in Leicester earlier this month.

The 15-year-old from Arnold, who was taking part in only his 3rd contest, took on the more experienced Owen Shaw of Langwith ABC.

In first round Harkin started the slower and allowed Shaw to push forward, but after a talking to in the corner from ASOB coaches, Harkin came out flying in the second catching Shaw with some good shots and forced the Langwith boxer back .

The third round was a bit closer, with Harkin doing the slightly better work.

After a fantastic battle Harkin was declared the winner on a points verdict.

Young Harkin only took up boxing a year a go, so can be very proud of his performance.
