Meanwhile Mally, who fought at 55kg, won by unanimous decision.

Head coach Rob Lovett praised the boys’ brilliant work.

“These two boys gave it their all,” he said. “All-in-all a huge success — I couldn’t be prouder.

“Also big ups to the Lovett Muay Thai tribe who made the trip up from Albany to support our fighters and the help you give them on a weekly basis.”
