Precious books spot in Yorkshire final
Bridlington's James Precious is into the Yorkshire final of the Junior ABA Championships.
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.
Head coach Damien Grant said: “It was a great display of boxing with James listening to every word told.
“He really deserved this win after all the hard work he has put in.”
