It proved to be another successful weekend for Isaan Gym's Junior UK Muay Thai boxers, as they turned in some clinical performances at the Barnsley Metrodrome Super Show.

Head coach Stephen Donnelly was happy as his fighters claimed three wins and a runner-up in a four-man tournament.

Fighting for the Oldham gym were Tommy Lowe, aged 12, Ella Haywood, aged 13, Connor Shaw, aged 12, Keira Ellaby, aged 10 and Luke Mattinson, who is 12.

Head Coach Stephen said: “Isaan Gym has had a fantastic year and I’m very proud of all my boxers.

"It’s all about the performances.

"They are all mixing it in good company, competing against the best gyms in the country.”

With more competitions on the way, Isaan Gym hope they can add more titles and maintain its growing reputation as one of the best Muay Thai gyms around.
