Roche Boxing have recently clocked up over a thousand miles, competing up and down the country.

Young Courtney Hughes and Arbazz Ikram boxed just outside London against tough opposition.

Courtney flouted her skills and won every round and Ikram put on a fabulous display that had the crowd on their feet.

Then, in Maryport in Cumbria, rising star Aaron Hayden and Aquib Mushtaq were up against more experienced fighters.

Aaron put on a classy performance, and poured on the pressure, giving his opponent a standing eight count in the second and final round, though the bell saved him.

Aquib landed some great body shots and right hooks that wobbled his opponent, but he suffered a knee injury in the third round which needed medical attention.
