TEENAGE boxing star Liam Walsh won his latest clash on points in Nottingham this month.

The 19-year-old, from Kenmare in Co. Kerry, who is known as 'The Kingdom Kid' made his professional debut at Celtic Clash in Belfast back in October 2021.

Winning his second fight against the experienced Seamus Devlin (40-36) a month later at the Newark Showground, Walsh and his team were proving the combination of tactics and skill were key to success.

Returning to the Newark Showground for his third bout on March 5, Walsh was up against 34-year-old Lithuanian, Geneadij Krajevskij.

Scheduled for four-rounds, Walsh kept his opponent at distance and avoided any unnecessary scrapping with a fighter who has 28 fights under his belt.

Going the four-round distance, Referee Kevin Parker declared Walsh the winner scoring the bout 40-36.
