The National Smelting Co Amateur Boxing Club (NSC ABC) hosted their second sell-out show of the season last week at Henbury Social Club. Head Coach Garry Cave reports...
We had three young juniors compete in skills bouts; Cameron Lusted, ‘Big’ Ted Philips and Ben Harvey, five close losses, and a magnificent seven wins. All of the boxers, win or lose, were a credit to the club.
Junior bantamweight Luke ‘The Force’ Connors never stopped punching - from bell to bell. He must be one of the fittest boxers in the country. Junior lightweight Ben Smyth won his first bout in a very accomplished display, while junior lightweight ‘Dazzling’ Dan Shackell racked up his seventh win from eight bouts.
Junior featherweight Tyler ‘Tiger’ Davies reversed a loss from a couple of weeks ago at Trowbridge with some clever punch picking, and senior light heavy Matt ‘The Ostrich’ Nickerson got his first win under his belt with a second round stoppage victor.
Senior middleweight Shane ‘Da Bomber’ Brown came back from a first round standing count to stop his hard-punching opponent in the third round. Senior lightweight Tom ‘Tucker’ Connors had a comeback win after being out for several months with injury, with a very skilful display of counterpunch boxing.
A massive thanks to everybody that helped to make the show the success that it was.
