A TEEN won a fight in one of the biggest Muay Thai and kickboxing promotions in Europe.

Finn Welch, 17, is a sixth-form student at Haydon Bridge High School and won the fight in the Muay Thai Grand Prix through a technical knockout (TKO) in round three.

The event was held in Sheffield on May 27.

His brother Joe, 26, is also involved in the sport.

Joe explained Finn fought a more experienced opponent and defeated him in the third round.

The Muay Thai Grand Prix holds events across Europe and worldwide.

Joe said Finn will fight on another big promotion in the North, Victory Promotions, later in the year.

Joe said: "He trained so hard, he was absolutely buzzing for a couple of weeks afterwards.

"I'm proud to see his hard work is paying off," he added.
