61 year old firefighter and kickboxing grandad Steve Reilly in Horwich, Bolton, April 21 2022. See SWNS story SWLEboxer. A British grandad has become a Thai boxing sensation - after landing a knock-out blow on a fighter half his age to clinch an international championship. Steve Reilly, 61, flew out to central Thailand to take on his much younger opponent, known by his fighting name "Oot", in the Hua Hin Thai Boxing competition last month. And after taking down the experienced fighter - in his 30s - in just three rounds, he brought his title-winning belt back home to show his delighted five grandkids. Steve, who both manages a martial arts gym and works as a fireman, has won four British Thai boxing titles and a European title during his 40-year career.
