Boxing: Teenager Jack's big date

A YOUNG boxer from Swarcliffe, Leeds, will fight in the CYP National Championships at Bolton's Reebok Stadium tomorrow.

Jack Daniel, 16, will battle it out with Welsh champion Billy Pickles in front of a crowd which could include boxing superstar Amir Khan.

The Corpus Christi schoolboy is continuing a proud family history as uncle Michael Daniel won a national title in 1974.

Jack's dad, Paul, boxed for England in the 1980s and described his son as a southpaw who likes to counter-punch.

Jack beat two national champions to reach the final.
