Tyler Scott, aged nine, put in a superb performance as he dropped a points decision against Stan from the Peel Muay Thai club.

Tommy Lowe, aged 13, also turned in a master-class of a performance against Liam Derbyshire as he retained his UK number 1 ranking.

Meanwhile, Luke Mattinson, aged 14, dropped a point decision in what was a career best performance to date against Jake Newman from the Majestic Gym.

Head coach Steve Donnelly said: “It’s all about the performances.

“Yokkao is the biggest stage in Muay Thai, so I was very proud of our boxers.”
