Cromer's boxing twins Ryan and Liam Walsh scored a quickfire double on Saturday night on the 'Hammer Time' show at West Ham's Upton Park ground.

Ryan demolished his opponent, Eugene Heagney, in just 49 seconds, while Liam took one minute and 59 seconds to see of the challenge of Ibrar Riyaz.

With the noisy 'Farmy Army' making themselves known in the Bobby Moore stand, super-bantamweight Ryan had Heagney on the back foot from the bell, with referee Dave Paris stepping in to call a halt to the punishment with the Huddersfield man hardly throwing a punch in anger.

Riyaz had to take a standing count after a series of hefty body punches by Liam, who finished the job with a clumping right to the side of his head.
