James First (also known as Jimmy) of Halifax Police Boxing Club becomes the clubs sixth champion in as many years, Jimmy had three fights in three weeks to become Champion of Yorkshire in the novice 64/67 category class A. All the bouts where hard but the final one the hardest with Yorks ABC Joey buckle. The York boxer was the biggest lad Jimmy had fought and a good boxer to boot, but Jimmy worked hard with some great jab work to win unanimously on the judges score cards, well done Jimmy First who now joins the Halifax clubs hall of fame at the old lane base.
Well done ‘The Fist’

In a very interesting and informative report on Boxing By Paul Sims of the Mail Online – He touches on the introduction of Boxing back into schools in England, and the positive effect it has had on attendance records and behaviour amongst the youth.
Rise in boxing credited with improving behaviour and school attendance
Just over a decade ago it was a sport many thought should be banned.
But after a mini renaissance in the past ten years, boxing is now on the rise and is being credited with improving behaviour and attendance within schools.
In the past four years alone the number of schools with boxing on the curriculum has soared from 20 to 1,931 and according to the latest national school sports survey boxing is now available in 34 per cent of secondary schools in England.
