Seven-up Mikey Worswick at last got his hands on his Commonwealth belt.
Mikey won it in September, seeing off favourite Nigel Thomas in Luton, but a delay meant he didn’t get it on the night.
But it finally landed in Accrington and it means the 19-year-old now has seven kickboxing belts ranging from a North West title to an English crown to now Commonwealth glory.
The former Rhyddings High School pupil has dedicated his latest belt to his dad Richard who is recovering from bowel cancer.
Mikey, who is a member of Kokoro gym on Dale Street and became the youngest English professional title holder at just 17, is now looking to get a world title belt at 75kg.
"I went to Ireland recently and spoke to Tommy McCafferty who has got the world title at two weights – middleweight and light-middleweight," said Mikey’s coach Jason Curtis. "He is an outstanding fighter. He beat me in one fight but I think Mikey is a better kickboxer than him although Tommy, at 25, has a lot more experience.
"Mikey is becoming well known in kickboxing circles and it would be a huge fight. That’s what we are trying to set up."
Then Mikey plans to turn to boxing and add even more belts to his collection.
