John, who trains at New Saints in St Neots, is aiming to become national champion next year after falling at the semi-final stage last time out.

His long-term aim is to become a professional boxer.

John said: “A big thanks to my sponsors Madina Grill who supply good, healthy food and also supply boxing ring wear when needed.”
