BOXER Eli Frankham won his second title in the space of a month on Monday when he was crowned the Clubs for Young People UK champion.

Frankham, 16, from Walople St Andrew, beat Welshman Sean Rafferty in the final 7-3 on points.

He said: "He was a stocky fighter and kept going for the killer punch, so I kept my distance and fought technically.

"I thought he would go down in the second round when I landed three or four good shots, but it was a comfortable win in the end.
