CHAMPION boxer Charlie Stevens is hoping to prove a knock out when he switches on the March Christmas lights in November.

Charlie from Upwell is ABA Junior Champion and also Three Nations Champion.

Clive Lemmon from the lights committee said it was decided to ask Charlie in recognition of a local sporting youngster doing well.

Clive explained Charlie’s name was put forward at the committee meeting last month and the reply came back that he would be proud to flick the switch on November 25 at 7pm when he will arrive in the Market Place with Santa.
