Super heavyweight Akeem Lemoth was defeated by a single point as the Boston ABC fighter boxed on a show in Northampton this weekend.

In a hard-hitting contest, Lemoth visited the canvas in the first round following a good shot by his Wellingborough ABC opponent.

However, he picked himself back up and forced his opponent on the defence in the second.

The third round saw some explosive exchanges before the Wellingborough man got the decision.

Callum Parker also fought on the Far Cotton ABC show against a taller opponent.

The Northampton boxer dominated the final two rounds to earn a unanimous points decision.

Boston ABC will host their home show at Haven High Technical College on Saturday.

Tickets - costing £10 - will be available to purchase on the door.

Doors will open from 6.30pm.

Action will begin at approximately 8pm.
