Gliniecki after second Hull Box Cup title

Alness teenager Ewan Gliniecki will travel to Hull this weekend looking to win his second International Box Cup title in three years.

The 13-year-old, representing Highland Boxing Academy, took home the gold medal on his debut appearance there in 2017 after winning three fights in three days.

Gliniecki will be part of a trio of HBA fighters that head coach Liam Foy hopes will all be able to win their categories.
