Kickboxers Nesta Baxter and Ambie Brocklesby could be taking on some of the finest fighters across the globe at the WAKO World Championships.

The two youngsters - members of Boston’s Evolution Martial Arts Clubs - have both been called up to the Great Britain squad.

The pair, who have previously fought for the country in Poland, have been invited to fight in Italy at the World Bestfighter tournament later this month.

In Krakow last year, Ambie, 11, finished fifth in his category, with 14-year-old Nesta finishing in sixth spot.

The duo are sponsored by Acorn Taxis, who will ferry the pair to and from the airport.

Members of Evolution have also been claiming more tournament medals.

Nesta Baxter led the way for the club as she picked up another title as she competed at the Top Ten British Championships.

Nesta came away from the event with first place in the -50kg light continuous section.

This was followed by a strong number of members travelling to Windsor to compete in the CIMAC Southern tournament.

A number of silver medals were won, claimed by Chloe Mallett and Nesta Baxter, while Ambie Brockelsby returned with a bronze.

Harley Butterfield, Zac Baldry and Vicki Bradford all picked up runners-up awards.

Josh Talbot is new to the club but also competed in Windsor.

He added to the list of runner-up awards.
