There was a sell-out crowd to watch the Martin Lewis Cup, and proceeds raised went to Overgate Hospice.

Several fighters were making their first appearance in the ring and Jimmy Honey was unlucky to lose out on a split decision in his first bout.

Kiah Mason lost to a much more experienced boxer while Lily Heslen was also edged out in a very close battle but earned the junior fighter of the night accolade for her efforts.
