Unbeaten Sheffield boxer Adam Etches has been given a knockout honour - a racehorse has been named after him.

He met ‘Bomber Etches’ for the first time last week, one of several horses owned by his main sponsor, Jack Shearer of MDL Energy.

Adam, an ambassador for Weston Park Cancer Hospital, says a percentage of the horse’s future winnings will go to the Sheffield charity.
