Kickboxer Vikki Ranson stopped her opponent to be crowned British ISKA amateur champion.

Ranson, who belongs to the local TS Kickboxing Club, won her title fight by a third round stoppage in Small Heath, Birmingham.

She had her opponent in trouble in the opening round but Rotherham fighter Vicki Rae fought back well in the second.

In the third and decisive round, Ranson was aggressive from the start. She landed good kicks to the body, and relentless work on the inside to the body and head had Rae going backwards. Midway through the round, Ranson countered a kick with a crushing right cross that sent Rae to the canvas.
