Bridlington boxer James Precious had to overcome a familiar face to win the Yorkshire final of the NABGC Championships.

He earned a unanimous decision over Joshua Jackson from Vulcan ABC in Leeds to book his place in the national quarter-finals in two weeks time.

Precious and Jackson are good friends outside the ring and have sparred together on several occasions.

But Precious, a former England champion, impressed the judges during the bout in Sheffield to progress.
