The cream of the Scarborough boxing scene will be in action as Scarborough Amateur Boxing Club’s host a joint show.

Tonight’s event at the Blue Dolphin Holiday Park consists of 15 bouts and includes fighters from both clubs.

Scarborough’s Jamie Scotter tops the bill against a fighter from Leeds, while Westway’s George Horner, who recently fought in the last eight of the national finals of the ABAs, is also out in action.

Popular Scarborough heavyweight Oliver Battye is in action against a Hull-based opponent as he looks to continue his impressive progression in the amateur ranks.

Doors at the Blue Dolphin open at 7.45pm, with action set to start at 8pm.

Admission is £10, with under-14s and OAPs charged at £6.

Promoter John Brownlie said: “We have some excellent bouts on paper, it should be a great night of boxing.”
