Boston Amateur Boxing Club teenager Adrianna Finch proved her dominance against opponent Millie Sykes once again.

Sykes - a Leicester Railwayman ABC boxer - requested the match-up, after Finch had stopped her within 20 seconds of the first bell when they met at Boston’s Princess Royal Sports Arena weeks earlier.

But once again, it was the Bostonian who prevailed.

And that left Sykes suffering her second stoppage against the same opponent in the space of four weeks.

On this occasion the bout lasted into the second round.

However, Finch again showed her mettle in the world of women’s boxing.

Fighting on a card promoted by the Leicestershire club, Finch took the initiative right from the start.

After doing the business in front of a home crowd, she was preparing to face an opponent with the backing of the support.

But that ddn’t ruffle Finch’s feathers.

Her strong and positive offensive style found Sykes wanting, and the referee soon stepped in to give the home-town fighter a first-round standing count.

Sykes made it to the bell, but from the start of the second round it was clear there was only going to be one winner.

Further pressure fr0m Finch saw shots landing and Sykes forced to take her second standing count of the evening.

From the re-start, Finch landed telling blows, before the referee halted proceedings.
