He overcame a tough opponent, Bilal Ali of the Evolve Boxing Club in Morley, in Sunday’s semi-final.

The two went head-to-head in the 50kg category, having met once before, when Ali took the judges’s decision.

But after training twice a day at the Bridlington club during half-term, Precious was able to avenge the previous result and book his place in the final in 10 days time.

“He really deserved this win after all the hard work he has put in.”
