Two Sparta ABC fighters added wins to their records in Lincoln last weekend.

Andrew Garner and Igor Mihailov made the journey across the Lincolnshire border to step through the ropes at a dinner show – and both impressed.

First up was Andrew, who secured his third straight Sparta win with a commanding performance. He utilised the set-piece moves he had honed in the gym to ease to a unanimous decision victory.

Next into the ring was 18-year-old Igor, who showed off his technical ability over three rounds to claim another dominant victory.

Coach, Roy Greenacre, said: “I was very proud to be the boys’ corner men. They both performed with great skill.”
