Teenage boxer Cameron Hetherington enjoyed an explosive return to action with two victories in the space of three days in what were his first fights in nearly eight months.

The 18-year-old, who trains at Watsons Boxing and Fitness in Marton, last fought at the Hvidovre Box Cup in Denmark back in late march, but there was no sign of ring rust in his comeback during a show at Liverpool.

Hetherington overwhelmed his opponent, who took a standing eight-count just ten seconds after the opening bell.

Within 30 seconds, the fight was stopped after some heavy right hands left the hometown fighter struggling to defend himself.

The former Walney Central and England Lions under-19 rugby league player was then given a stiffer test during a show at Team Greaves ABC in Oldham.

Up against a heavy opponent who was able to withstand his best shots, Hetherington was still given a unanimous decision, having won every round.

Coach Ryan Watson said: “It was good for Cameron to get a few rounds in during his second fight and he looked as sharp as anything in there.

“Staying in the gym during his time away from the ring has done him the world of good. He stuck at it and never let his head go down.

During the show in Liverpool, 12-year-old Ellis Young was defeated on points, but showed plenty of skill in a bout that could have gone either way.
