LEDBURY Boxing Club's Alex 'Pinky' Florence returned to the ring in style by beating Cardiff University's Jimmy Sandham.

Florence, who had been running the club in the absence of his father Fred, had flawless three rounds against his 26-year-old opponent, displaying lots of speed and skill.

"It was nice to be back on circuit and putting my son at his rightful place at the top where he belongs," said Fred,

"Since he was 11 years old, I said I would put Alex up against anyone his weight category and age doesn't matter."

Anyone who wishes to join the club, which is open Mondays and Wednesdays from 6.30pm to 9pm can call 01531 631879 or 07833 918134.
