REDDITCH Boxing Academy is celebrating another knockout success after victories for several of its fighters.

Sophie Newnes claimed the British NOGI Jiu Jitsu heavyweight title on February 4. MMA coach Newnes won the final in under four minutes after submitting her opponent with an armbar.

There were also victories for heavyweight boxers Ash Colby and Richard Bennett in their England Boxing Contest bouts against Shrewsbury on February 3.

Colby withstood a barrage of hooks early in the fight before starting to dominate with a series of well-timed shots.

A hook to the head followed by two straight shots resulted in a second-round technical knockout.

Bennet enjoyed similar success when he fought later in the evening. After countering well in the first round, he also won by TKO in the second after an uppercut and left hook knocked his opponent off his feet.

Earlier in the season Jae Hudson won gold at the 'King of the Ring' event in Sweden whilst Leo Fanthome was crowned England Boxing Midlands champion.
