A TEENAGE boxer from Keighley has won his second Yorkshire title.

Jamaal Rehman fights out of Keighley Amateur Boxing Club, and members of the team were there to support him last Sunday, as he triumphed by split decision in Rotherham.

He has been in good form over the last few months, having scooped the Yorkshire Region Junior Championships crown last September.

His second Yorkshire title win in Rotherham last Sunday means he is now boxing this weekend too, this time against the North West county champion.

That bout will also take place in Rotherham, and the winner will go forward to the National Junior Championships quarter-finals.

Rehman reached those in October too, but that was where his run of victories ended, as he went out at the last-eight stage in Bridlington.

But the Oakbank School pupil has a chance to put that right if he wins this weekend, and he will be feeling confident after his win last Sunday.

Discussing it, Keighley Amateur Boxing Club coach George Metcalf said: “Jamaal fought very well, against someone who was a more experienced boxer from the Yorkshire area.

“The boy is doing great, working hard in preparation for his next contest.”
