Justas Pundzius made the step up to light heavyweight in style.

The boxer opened up Boston Academy Amateur Boxing Club’s season with a points win.

Fighting in South Normanton, Derbyshire, Pundzius won two of the three rounds on the judges’ scorecards at his new weight as he saw his arm raised following his bout against opponent Ryan Gascoyne.

The Boston Academy, home to town pro Callum Johnson, is open for training from Monday to Friday each week.

Training takes place between 6pm-8pm at its base on Fishtoft Road.
