Keighley boxer Muhammad Ali is bidding to claim yet another national title on Sunday when he takes on Brighton’s Kealon McFadden in the final of the class B 52kg England Youth Championships.

The Bury Amateur Boxing Club teenager (pictured) used his jab to great effect in winning his semi-final after just one round.

His opponent, Shaba Ahmed (Ingles ABC), was given two standing counts before the referee stopped the contest at Croxteth Sports Centre in Liverpool.

Now Ali is determined to go all the way in the final at Worsley, near Manchester, which would set up another tilt at the British crown next month.
