A RISING Lochgelly boxing star has continued to pack a punch after he picked up another win at a recently-held show.

Harris Folks, who is a member of Glenrothes Boxing Club, stepped into the ring at an event held by Dundee-based Skyaxe Combat and Fitness Centre, and came home with a victory.

The fourth year Lochgelly High School pupil won his bout via a unanimous decision, which took his record to six successes from 10 fights.

Harris' grandfather, Allan McCulloch, who is also a coach with Glenrothes Boxing Club, said: "It was a 60kg match, welterweight, against one of their lads, Jack Bray.

"Harris won on a unanimous decision, which is not an easy thing to do on someone else's home show.

"He went in and boxed really well. In the first round, there was not a lot in it, but maybe Harris just shaded it. He won the second and third rounds convincingly, which was really good.

"You have to dominate someone else's boxer on their home show to get a result, and Harris did that. He's really coming on.

"That was his 10th fight and he's won six and lost four, which isn't a bad record."

Last year, Harris, 15, enjoyed success that included winning a silver medal at the Boxing Scotland Eastern District Schools and Junior Championships, in just his fifth bout since taking up the sport in 2021.

The youngster can also look to family for inspiration in the sport as his aunt, Emma McCulloch, is a four-time Boxing Scotland Elite Championship winner who has reached number one in both the British and Commonwealth rankings for her weight category, and became Fife's first female professional boxer in 2019.

This Friday, Glenrothes Boxing Club are hosting a 'Champions in the Making' home show, for which more information is available on their Facebook page.
