More than 500 fans flocked to the New Era Complex on Friday night for a sell-out show organised by Burnley’s Sandygate Amateur Boxing Club.
Oswaldtwistle’s 18-year-old female prospect Ellis Nuttall, from Sandygate ABC, showed her class against Huyton ABC’s Emma Rushton.
Nuttall boxed superbly, dominating the bout with her quick jab and natural movement.
In the second and third the boxing belle bossed the Liverpudlian, connecting well showing an impressive repertoire of pin-point punching, which saw her gain a unanimous verdict.
Sandygate coach John Brindle said: "Ellis Nuttall changed a lot of old-school views on female boxing, winning over a knowledgeable crowd with a brilliant performance."
Show stopper and the final bout of the night saw Clayon-le-Moors hitman 22-year-old Ben Brindle who faced Stockport’s Tommy Johnson (Bredbury ABC) and dominate all three rounds.
Barrages of body-shots and deadly combinations resulted in a unanimous verdict.
Elsewhere recently returned Paratrooper Lee O’Hara, 22 from Accrington, faced Derbyshire’s Alex Reed (Trinity ABC) in a one-sided affair, with the ex-Army Team Squad boxer pushing and punishing his taller opponent to give Reed a count in the first and third rounds, earning yet another unanimous verdict.
Clayton-le Moors Harry Magee (16) lost a majority decision to Jake Moss (Hope ABC).
