Corben was the much more experienced fighter but couldn't cope with Turner's skill. Turner has been picked for England and is moving fast through the ranks.

Evie Well blasted her way to victory beating Ruby Taylor from the NBA club in a very close fight.

Charlie Roche started well but learned there are tough fights in the amateur ranks, losing to Ethan Learning from Ingles gym.

Jake Turner went on to win the Yorkshire belt at 69kg for the Halifax club, matching his younger brother Joe who holds the belt at 52kg.

The night ended with a thriller from Halifax's Jordan Healey, who was sent to the canvas in the second round, only to get up and win a great fight against Alex Conlon from Blackrod ABC.

The club raised over £3,000 through the event.
