FARNWORTH fighter Sahir Iqbal was the star of the show at the prestigious Harringey Box Cup.

Organisers voted the 17-year-old the best boxer of the tournament, which pits together the best fighters from some of the most renowned boxing clubs in Europe.

It continued a devastating run of victories for the rising star who won the British junior 60k title in a Three Nations clash in Swansea two weeks ago and became English champion a fortnight earlier.

Coach Mick Jelley, who oversaw the fledgling career of Amir Khan, described Iqbal’s performance, and that of his Bury ABC team-mates, as the “best collective display” he has ever seen from his club.

“There was only one other club from Britain and the rest of the world who did better than us,” said Jelley, after seeing four of Bury ABC’s six-strong contingent come away with gold medals and the team finish second.

“Hooks – one of the most respected gyms in London – won the competition, but we had the same number of winners and they took eight fighters with them.

“They only beat us because they had two silvers too.

“This is the biggest performance put in by this club in years.

“To go to a tournament like this and win four golds is extraordinary.

“It’s a massive achievement.”

Iqbal enjoyed a unanimous points victory over Tion Gibbs, of Hall Green, in the open class 60k division final.

Bury’s other winners were Muhammad Ali, aged 17, in the open class 52k division, Ali Zahid, aged 20, in the 71k division and 24-year-old Whitefield boxer Sarah Dunne in the 57k division.
