The National Smelting Company held its forth boxing tournament of the season at the Pill Memorial Club on Thursday 9th  April. The show was sponsored by D & D Shoe Repairs, who very kindly bought new tracksuits for the NSC boxing team. First to box in his debut bout was 11-year-old Orlando Rawlings in a non-decision skills bout. Said NSC Head coach Garry Cave "A skills bout is similar to a real contest but the empathise is more on skilful boxing over three rounds and not all out aggression. Both boxers get their arms raised at the end of the bout, so there's no losers only winners. They're a fantastic way of introducing young boxers into the sport, it really brings them on". Second on this 12 bout bill was 12-year-old Tom Cave, son of Garry, in his first competitive bout after previously boxing in three skills bouts, matched against Kyle Holden Of Mayflower ABC from Plymouth. Despite giving away height and weight and after a very hard going first round, young Cave started to find his range with good straight punch combinations and rack up the points to win his bout with a unanimous points verdict. Informed Cave "After the first minute I thought I'd got him in over his head with the size difference but he bit down on his gum shield and showed some bottle and pulled it out the bag in the second and third rounds".

 

Third up for the host club was Pilning's James Shackell facing across the ring in the blue corner Keelan Morris of Synwell ABC.

 

Reported Cave "James worked very hard throwing loads of punches, he really set a fast pace, a pace that turned out to be just too much for Kellan who was retired by his corner after the second round. I'm made up for James he lost his first two bouts and hasn't had much luck with results despite two very good performances. This should be a good confidence booster for the lad and was a well deserved win after all the effort he's put in at the gym and in his roadwork."

 

Next up for the Smelters and hoping to keep the club on a winning streak was 12-year-old Jake Musgrove versus Faz Macvey of Salisbury. Musgrove nick named 'The Monster' by his club mates was in ferocious form with his all action front foot style. Musgrove a Western Counties Schoolboy champ wasn't to be denied, forcing a third round stoppage due to relentless pressure and moves to five wins from eight bouts. Said Cave " Jake only boxes one way and that's full on, but he's also a very skilful aggressive boxer with a good defence, that always gives 100%". After three wins for the NSC it was down to 15-year-old welterweight Dan Wickins in his third outing boxing Aaron Chivers Of Salisbury. Dan had won his first bout two weeks previously at the Wells show in a bout that saw three knockdowns. Said Cave "Dan had one hell of a bout at Wells he shipped a couple of big punches but showed his mettle and put the other kid down in the second and third round to go on to win unanimous from the three judges. He boxed really well again in this bout showing great composure and picked his shots to win on points".  Light welterweight Bradley Collingbourne had a torrid time against Dan Butler of Gloucester ABC. The Gloucester boxer was disqualified in the 3rd round for constant infringement of the rules. Informed Cave "What a horrible bout, Butler was constantly warned for holding, but full respect to Brad he kept his head and did his best versus an opponent that didn't want to stand and box" You can only box what's put in front of you and Brad showed good sportsmanship throughout". Bout nine saw local welterweights Terry Richards from Southmead lose on points to Dan Sarkozi of Bristol's Empire ABC. Richards struggled with the bigger size of Sarkozi in a bout at times that got a bit scrappy.

 

Said Cave " We where all a bit disappointed for Terry as we thought he had the tools to beat Sarkozi but Terry really struggled with the height and weight difference. But Terry was back to winning ways last Saturday where he was picked along with Southmeads light heavy Jo Ross to box versus a Jersey select team. Both got a win and to get a result out there was brilliant, the Western Counties Coach told me they both boxed brilliantly and where a real credit to the club and the Western Counties Boxing Team".

 

Stable mate Jo Ross was pitched in with the very useful Henry Roy of Empire, and after two hard fought rounds pulled out a peach of a left hook that caused a bad cut over the Empire boxers eye. Said Cave " You don't see that many cuts in amateur boxing due to the head guards and gloves at are designed to prevent them. Unfortunately, this was a deep one and the referee had no option to halt the action in favour of Jo in the third".

 

Last on the bill was Avonmouth first team rugby player and NSC boxer Liam Poole boxing at light heavy and winning pts in a very close hard fought bout versus Ryan Morris of Tiverton ABC with Poole landing the cleaner and heavier blows. That made it a very impressive nights work for the Avonmouth based club with seven wins from eight competitive bouts for the NSC.

 

 

 

The NSC has had two more of it's boxers in juniors Bradley Collingbourne and Jerry Connors who have both been selected to box v a Guernsey team in a rep match on Friday the 24th of April. The following night Dan Wickins, Jake Musgrove and Terry Richards are all matched up to box on the MYCON ABC bill at Nailsea.

 

 

 

The NSC host their next home show at the Patchway Sports Centre on Thursday June the 4th, doors at 7pm, first bell at 8pm. This is a joint show with Empire ABC.
