Nakibul Khan is due to be in action at Bexhill Amateur Boxing Club's open show tomorrow

After the success of the inaugural event last summer when around 300 people came to watch, Bexhill ABC will be back at Pebsham Community Centre tomorrow (Saturday) from 6pm.

Plenty of Bexhill ABC talents will be in action on what promises to be a busy night. Senior-wise, local barber Connor McLeod is having his first bout, as is Mehmet Toprak.

Big guys Ashley Mountain, Tygorah Smith and the experienced Steve Garlick are expected to be on show, and a female contest is on the card as well.

Also representing Bexhill will be the Khan brothers, Nakibul and Shanto, who are boxing boys from Dartford and Tunbridge Wells. Alfie James is having a rematch against a lad from Gym 01 in Portsmouth who narrowly beat him on points at the beginning of the year.

Twelve-year-olds Jake Mabb, Josh Cato, Jacob Jones, Jack Doorey-Palmer and Marshall Freeman are set for their first competitive bouts, while 11-year-old Jagen Toprak will be in a skills contest.

The Lions Club, The Barber Shop, No. 48, Crafted and The Italian Way are sponsoring the show. Tickets cost £10 in advance and £15 on the door. Call Terry Freeman on 07840 914432.
