Hazelwick student Lucas Noel's hard work in training paid off when he notched up his first victory in Ramsgate against Harvey Hamilton of the Invicta club from Sittingbourne.

Boxing to instruction Noel won the first round using his double jabs and straight rear hands over his opponents guard. Hamilton came looking for it in the second but the high guard of Noel stopped anything of use landing. The Kent lad's frustration showed in the third when international referee Geoff Canell took a point off him for incorrectly punching with the inside of the glove after multiple fouls.

Noel kept his composure and landed big shots of his own before the final bell to take the win on all judges cards.
