A bumper bill of boxing at Exmouth Pavilion this Saturday features young debutants, a veteran champion and an Exmouth prospect returning home in a revenge clash against one of the UK’s top amateurs, writes David Beasley
The tournament, on May 19, is Lympstone ABC’s final bill of the season and guest of honour will be world-ranked current British and Commonwealth Super Flyweight Champion, Lee Haskins who hopes to bag a world title this year.
The evening will be kicked off three of Lympstone’s promising juniors who will be making their debuts.
Ben Holland, 12, 38kg, takes on Noel Knight of City of Gloucester ABC.
Aaron Robinson, 11, 42Kgs meets Josh Swarbrick of Exeter while Rory Clay, 12, and 36Kgs locks horns with Brandon Head of Apollo Torquay.
Experienced Harry Webb, 15, 60kgs meets Nick Demery of Bristol. Webb defeated Demery’s twin brother at Exmouth Pavilion last October.
Senior Connor Lester, 17, and 63Kgs will be seeking revenge over Dan Nickles of Torbay.
Nickles defeated Lester in a dubious points decision at Torbay recently.
James Beaumont 23, and 74Kgs will look to increase his winning run when he meets Alex Dubbin of the Apollo club.
Royal Marine Gary Robinson, fresh from his shock win at Exeter recently, takes on another Apollo boxer Paul Henshaw.
While Newcomer to Lympstone’s senior ranks at 74kgs, Dean Tratt, takes on Nick Miller of Carl’s Boxing Stable in Plymouth in what will be an interesting encounter.
Lympstone’s in form Jared Jones, 20, and 75Kgs will be tested by Danny Milner of Downend.
Lympstone’s World Fire-fighter Champion Matt Mason, 36, and 82Kgs will have a warm up bout against David Ruiz of Exeter.
Mason travels to Sydney Australia in October to defend his title.
Olly Kitchen, currently campaigning out of the Nemisis club London, returns home to top the bill against Wayne Ingram of the City of Gloucester.
Ingram comes to the ring having won Schoolboy and Junior Amatuer Boxing Association titles.
It will be a tough bout for Kitchen who dropped a split decision against the Gloucester boxer at the Pavilion last May but Kitchen is confident he is able to reverse this.
