PONTEFRACT NEW College duo Keane Challoner and Ryan Newton enjoyed success at the World Kickboxing Championships in Cadiz, Spain.

Nine times British champion Ryan (pictured) successfully defended his world title, claiming gold in the 70kg category.

This is his third world crown and he is ranked number one in his category in the world.

Earlier this year Ryan, who trains at Gemini Karate and Kickboxing, in Normanton, won the British Championships when he fought his way through several rounds and a memorable final to add to six previous national titles at junior level and two at senior.

Keane, from Ackworth, made it a double medal success for the Pontefract college at the world event when he won a silver in the 75kg weight category.
