Boston Amateur Boxing Club junior Callum Parker earned a majority victory on a show in Hull this weekend.

The 12-year-old Parker was taking part in an event hosted by East Hull Boxing Club.

Facing home-club fighter Joshua Benn, the Boston youngster was eager to please the full house.

The first round was a busy one for both boxers.

For the cornermen the battle was too close to call at such an early stage of the contest.

Urged on by his corner, Parker was finding his target with the better offensive work after the bell, as his opponent started to tire.

The third and final round saw both boxers mount strong offensive attacks, but Parker was the fresher of the two pugilists, his combination work finding its target wanting.
