Six boxers from Oldham's Isaan Muay Thai Training Centre competed at the Sandee Novice Open event at the Majestic Gym in Wigan.
The tough competition was broken into two categories - those with 0-5 fights and those with 5-10 fights.
The Isaan contingent proudly returned to Oldham with five wins and one loss.
The five new novice open champions are:
Logan Crabb, aged eight years, 30kg winner
Tyler Scott, aged 11 years, 36kg winner
Kyron, aged 10 years, 33kg winner
Leo Deakin, aged eight, 34kg winner
Ben Evans, aged 14, 52kg winner
Ethan Flight, who is 16, had a bad day at the office with a second round stoppage defeat during a bout which was turning into a great fight.
Ethan will be back, however, as he has a superb attitude and work ethic.
Head coach Ste Donnelly said: "Success breeds success.
"The production line at Isaan is booming right now with the kids we are turning out and that was our 13th champion we have produced in five years."
