Sidmouth Muay Thai ace Jack Nunn is up to seventh in the country after his latest success.
Nunn was up against Corey McLachen, a junior world champion who went into the encounter with over 100 wins to his name!
The contest was fought out at the Doncaster Dome and Nunn was a convincing winner of the 57kg category fight, bagging a TKO during the fifth round and now replaces McLachen as the number seven ranked fighter after his win in what was only his eight fight as an amateur!
Jack says: "That's three successive wins against higher ranked opponents.
"The path ahead is now very clear to me. I aim to carry on working my way up the rankings as far as one day, fighting for a world title."

He continued: "I have started making a name for myself in the fight world. But I'm determined to remain humble.
"I want to make Sidmouth proud, and be a good role model for my three younger siblings.
