Two Morecambe-based amateur boxers are celebrating after becoming North West champions.

Owney Kelly, 15, won the North West Title in the 57kg weight class, while Harrison Dent, 29, is now North West Heavyweight Champion, after their victories last weekend.

Both train at the Morecambe and District Boxing Academy, based on Westgate in Morecambe.

Owney and Harrison (pictured below) will now move on to the national rounds this weekend in Tamworth.

Lauchlan Savage, 19, who also boxes at the M.A.D. Academy, also competed at the weekend, losing a close split decision.

The Academy presents its next live boxing event at the Alhambra in Morecambe on Friday October 21.

The event will be held in memory of Joe Wright.

Doors open at 6.30pm. VIP ringside tables cost £200 or standing tickets are £10 each.

All profits from the event will go to Papyrus, the charity for the prevention of suicide in young people.
