Young local boxer Ryan Haythornthwaite began his journey last week to fulfil his dream of becoming a professional boxer.

He made his amateur debut for Clayton ABC on Friday on their show at the New Era complex in Accrington. and was on the wrong end of a contraversial decision, losing on a split decision.

The first round was close, but Ryan arguably dominated the second and third.

Ryan 13, from Barrowford, is a pupil at Colne Primet Academy, and would like to say a big thank you to Steve Durkin Vehicle Services for their kind sponsorship.
