Yorkshire champion Turner had already beaten the North West champion and was now up against the Midlands champion Arron Sharp from the Bull Well Hall ABC.

The first round showed the Halifax boxer was too strong for the young Midlands lad, gaining him a count.

The second round saw the referee jumping in to stop the contest with Sharp unable to continue.
