KILSYTH Golden Gloves bantamweight Adam Ghaffar produced a fantastic display at Kilmarnock on Saturday night to clinch a hard fought victory over Northwest’s Kyle Sayers.

In a fast-paced encounter the fight swung one way and then the next, but showing superb fitness and skill young Ghaffar emerged a clear winner as the final bell rung.

This brings the boxing season to a close for Golden Gloves for a couple of months. However, the Tuesday keep fit class and the Thursday women’s sessions will still run through the close season.

Saturday was a busy day for the club as the gym was open to the public as part of the Civic Week celebrations and there were displays of sparring for the eager spectators.

Earlier in the week the boxing club also handed over the cheques for Help For Heroes.
