Kozak hooked well to the body and landed some heavy shots to the head for two rounds before his opponent retired at the end of the second round.

Ben Hutson (12) from Glinton did well in a skills bout against Walter Smith from New Saints to show he’s almost ready to make his competitive debut.

Head coach Chris Baker said: “I was proud of all our boxers. They showed great fitness and improvement. They did themselves and the club proud. The club is really going from strength to strength.”

Paston pair Aiden Smith (16) and TJ Harty (17) were both winners for the Kettering School of Boxing when appearing on their weekend show.
