ACCRINGTON kick boxers are bidding to be crowned WKA Northern Junior Champion.
Hama Yoon, 13, is up against Haroon Gull from Vipers Kick Boxing Club, on a show put together by Hama’s club, the Fit to Fight Kick Boxing Club in Accrington.
The bout will take place on Sunday 28 June at the New Era complex where Hama will top the bill but there will be 80 competitors fighting throughout the day.
"Hama has had 18 fights and won 14 so he is a good lad," said coach Billy Battrick of the 49kg competitor, whose fight may last three 90 second rounds.
"The Mayor of Hyndburn will present the belt."
Haroon, 14, is a replacement for Birmingham’s Daniel Swannick, who was injured in training.
The show will run from 11.30am-5pm and will feature fighters from the Fit to Fight Club, Vipers in Accrington and Ali’s School of Mixed Martial Arts in Hyndburn as well as further afield.
"It is during the day because of all the juniors taking part and we hope that people will come along and support the event," added Billy.
The cost is £5, payable on the day.
