Fighter of the day was Atlanta Hickman, a runner-up in the Sportswoman of the Year category at last month’s Peterborough Sports Awards.

As well as doing a splendid job on the coaching front, she also found time to compete herself as well and was a triple gold medallist. She won all three disciplines in her category.

“There were some awesome performances from several of our fighters,” said chief instructor Andrew Hicks. “It was an amazing day for our club and I was proud of all of them.”
