TOP kickboxing exponent Bin Tyler of the great-Yarmouth based 3 Lions Gym stormed to a decisive points win over Ireland's highly touted and vastly more experienced Sean Cumiskey, picking up the WKMA international super featherweight kickboxing title to add to his British and Eastern Counties kickboxing titles.

This win at the Gorleston Ocean Room moves Tyler up the European ratings and he could possibly contest the European title in the next 12 months. Coach Dave Munro said: “Bin has been with me since the age of nine and the sky is the limit with his talent and heart. ”

Marty 'Boy' Duke captured the WKMA English super middleweight title in a close battle with Norwich's talented Paul Sadler.

Paul Prewer was in devastating form, the former national champion beating extremely game and talented Gorleston Allstars Ben Nicholls by retirement win at the end of the second round.

Eastern Counties light welterweight champion Neil Platt defended his title in style, stopping Bury St Edmunds' Darren Robinson in the second round. Caine Bacon (12) beat Gage Borwing (Bury) for the schoolboy under 40 kilo Eastern counties area title by stoppage.

Scott Osinski in his debut bout beat tough Jason Pierce from Lowes Gym in an excellent battle between two good fighters. Jade Munro avenged an earlier bad decision in Suffolk last month by classily out pointing Bury's Abigail Read.

Jade was making a bit of history with her and dad Dave Munro being the first ever father and daughter fighting on the same bill in Norfolk.

Chase Crosswell narrowly outpointed Luca McComb. Kit Leung looked totally out of sorts in his Eastern Counties challenge with Norwich's Melly Dunthorne losing on points. Dunthorne though, looked a class act.

Daniel Gordon gave away age and experience and a lot of height losing an excellent bout with Norwich fighter Andy Godbold on points.

Liam Plant lost a very close split decision to Basildon fighter Ben Hamilton.

Daniel Dawson won on points showing a lot of skill and excellent head kicks. 3 Lions heavyweight Marco Henriques lost a split decision to Norwich Thai's Michael Ford.

In the main support bout club coach and former national Thai-boxing champion Dave Munro and former top rated Kent kickboxer Mick Barry both came out of retirement after nearly 10 years for a three round kickboxing charity bout.

It was to raise money for Dave's student and top rated fighter Paul Prewer's son Ryan who is in remission with leukaemia. Dave had a comprehensive points win, the two fighters raising nearly £1,500 for Ryan's fund.

Dave thanked his trainer Frank Crosswell and nutritionist and dietician Darren Casey, and Scott and Dean at Top Body Gym for all their help and advice and everyone who sponsored this very worthy cause.

The above fighters all train at the 3 Lions Gym at Escort road off Northgate Street, Great Yarmouth.
