Josh Alexander of Bo’ness has proved he’s a force to be reckoned with in the sport of Muay Thai, winning gold at the Scottish championships in Cumbernauld.

The youngster, who trains at Carnage Gym in Grangemouth, was the medal winner in the seven to nine-year-old age category, for the 27-30kg weight 

His route to the final included victory over a fighter from Aberdeen.

In the ultimate showpiece, Josh (9) of Stewart Avenue saw off his opponent - a lad from a Cumbernauld gym - in the first round, securing his title in what was his first appearance at a Scottish championship.

Special thanks go to his trainers, Colin Anderson and Jordan Coe.
