Great Whelnetham’s 12-year-old rising boxing star Freddie Barnby overcame an experienced opponent in Denmark with a unanimous win.

The Trumpington ABC member took part in a four-day boxing training camp and Box Cup competition in Felsted, Denmark.

Barnby was matched up with an opponent with a daunting record of six wins from six and 57 diploma bouts in Sweden, who had also been selected for the Danish national development squad.

A typical sit back counter-punching southpaw, he oozed confidence, but he met his match with Barnby.

The Trumpington boxer made it two out of two with a unanimous win for his club with a display of sheer determination, wearing down his opponent with speed and movement that belied his young years.
