For the first time in 25 years a boxer from Thetford has represented their hometown club.

With Matt and Taylor Dean in his corner a very close, hard fought three rounds followed with some gritty, powerful ringcraft from both boxers.

Unfortunately Milo came out on the wrong side of a split decision that could easily have gone his way.
