White Rose Boxing Club fighter Kieran Holroyd ended the year with a bang thanks to a terrific victory in his latest bout.

Holroyd, from Stanley, travelled to Merseyside and faced a tough opponent in local boxer Tom Williams, fighting out of the Croxteth Boxing Club.

Despite vociferous support for Williams from the Liverpool crowd in Kirkby, Holroyd held his nerve to dominate the fight from start to finish.

The Stanley boxer won the first round and then unleashed a barrage of blows in the second that forced Williams to retire.
