KICK BOXING: Title joy for Tyrone.
McNamara won by TKO in the 88.7kg class with just one second left of the third round in their top-of-the-bill clash at Radford Social Club, which was sold out despite a big amateur boxing event in the city on the same night.
In the evening's only other pro event Radford's Michael Bogusz was beaten by unanimous decision over five two-minute rounds to Northampton's Adam Dove, who took the Midland Area title at 80kg but will have a re-match in October.
All the kick-boxers train at the Coventry Freestyle gym under head coach Tom Morris on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays (07831 405197).
