AT Grainger Park’s boxing event, Newbiggin’s Nathan Stewart was unlucky to lose a close points decision.

At the same show, Newbiggin’s Ben Young took on C Hughes from Leam Lane. It was Young’s first fight and Hughes’ fifth. Powerful straight shots from Young saw Hughes take a count in the first then two in the second as the fight was stopped.

Newbiggin’s Lewis Scott has been in action recently against South Durham’s Matthew Tootill.

It was a lively start to the bout as Tootill stormed at Scott, but the Newbiggin boxer soon found his range and took control.

In the third, a perfectly placed right hook sent Tootill to the canvas, but the ref deemed it a slip.

But the writing was on the wall by the fourth round and Scott powered to a comfortable points win, in one of his best performances of the season.
