Nikki Arthur makes history

A Manx boxer made history at the weekend.

Nikki Arthur of the Manx ABC became the first female boxer from the Isle of Man to win an English national title.

She won it at the England Boxing National Novice Finals, which was held at the York Hall in Bethnal Green, London.

Coach Peter Roberts says she boxed brilliantly to win by a technical knock-out in the final round.
