ELI FRANKHAM picked up a unanimous points victory in the Peterborough Open Show.

The Wisbech Boxing Club member won all three rounds of his 80kg contest with Josh Burgess, from Milton Keynes Victors.

Frankham, 16, from Walpole St Andrew said: "I made hard work of it at times.

"He was short and stocky, so was always trying to turn the match into a scrap. I got drawn into that a bit too often.

"But I did produce some good technical boxing in stages as well and I was quite happy with my performance.
