Fernando Torres trumped his football rivals Wayne Rooney and Christiano Ronaldo at a Nantwich boxing event!

A Chelsea shirt signed by Torres was sold for £180 at the auction during the annual ABA night organised by Nantwich Cricket Club.

That came in £50 higher than a shirt signed by Rooney, and £80 more than Ronaldo’s shirt.

A framed photo montage of Sir Alex Ferguson was sold for £225 at the same event, compered by Sky Sports’ darts commentator John Gwynne.

The event, at Nantwich Civic Centre, hosted the ABA semi-final between Merseyside and Cheshire.

The audience watched 10 bouts, involving fighters from a range of different amateur clubs across the two regions.

It was the 32nd annual event.

Rob Sproston, chairman of Nantwich Cricket Club, said: “We must thanks our friends from the Merseyside and Cheshire ABA for their efforts in putting together the night’s bouts.”

Catering was provided by Nantwich restaurant Bon Amis, on Hospital Street.
