A memorial mass will be held for a young boxer who died after his first fight.

Jakub Moczyk, known to his friends and family as Kuba, died on November 21 - two days after he was knocked unconscious by a single punch during the final round of the bout at the Atlantis Arena in Great Yarmouth.

The mass will be at St Mary's Church, Regent Road, Yarmouth, on December 8 at 10am.

This will be before the family go to pay their last respects at Gorleston Crematorium.

In a Facebook message to the Mercury, his twin sister, Magdalena said: 'A life so beautifully lived, deserves to be beautifully remembered.'
