County title for Jimmy

Halifax Police Boxing Club’s Jimmy First has become the sixth county champion in the club’s history.

First gained a unanimous points victory over Joel Buckle from York ABC at Sheffield’s Colley Club, Parsons Cross.

Buckle threatened to overpower the Halifax man at times but First rocked the York man with his jab and gained the verdict due to his work rate.

It was First’s third fight in as many weeks and he plans to be in the ring again in the regional championships at Liverpool next Sunday.
