A TERRIFIC title win has gone the way of a Vale of Clwyd boxer.

When Ruthin's Scott "The Curse" Kearns took on unbeaten heavy handed "Sugar" Mike Robinson for the BBU Welsh light middleweight title at Brymbo Social Club, it seemed a big ask for the Craig Winter-trained Kearns, boxing out of the Denbigh Boxing club.

Kearns is an awkward, clever southpaw and Robinson made sure he forced him to move onto his big right hand.

However, Kearns had learned perfectly how to use his southpaw reach advantage and he moved quickly, making sure Robinson was unable to close easily and when he did, Kearns would step in with a sharp left upper cut and tie up his opponent.

Scott clearly won the first three rounds, but Mike would not give up and he had success in the fourth round when Kearns was forced to stand and trade punches.

Even then, he never seemed in any danger of being hurt.

It was an amazing win for the talented Scott Kearns as he has been boxing for less than three years, but in that time he has learned how to use his southpaw skills to frustrate orthodox boxers.

There has been further good news for another local boxer.

Jac Hughes and his brother Tom, from Cefn Fedw, Corwen, are both members of the Denbigh and District Amateur Boxing Club.

Recently, Jac took part in his first successful bout at St Martins.

With the support of coaches Peter Mackie and Nathan Hanika, Jac claimed the win.
