Exmouth ABC set for great night of entertainment at the Pavilion.

There is something for all boxing fans at Exmouth Pavilion this Friday night (November 19) when a large crowd is expected to enjoy what looks to be a well matched bill featuring a number of local boxers.
AFTER the usual frantic week of match making, Exmouth ABC’s show at the Pavilion this Friday night (7.45) will see ten local boxers in action, writes Phil Crook.
There are five Exmouth and five Lympstone ABC boxers on the bill. There are also another five from Exeter ABC also on the bill and it should make for a superb night entertainment.
The Pavilion is known for generating a tremendous atmosphere and this will surely be the case once again.
Limestone’s three light-middle weights have all been matched and they should all feature in very close contests. Chris Haines will face Minehead’s Adrian Chick in what will be Chick’s ring debut. Jared Jones, who most coaches at the recent Novice Championships in Newquay, thought had been very hard done by, will get the chance to get back to winning ways against Brad Westell from Carls Boxing Stable in Plymouth. Topping the bill will be the third boxer at 72 kilos, Rob Smith, who clashes with Matt Legg from Oakmead, Bournemouth.
The pick of the junior bouts should be the clash between Exmouth’s Daniel Hardy and Limestone’s Harry Webb.
Local derbies between the two clubs don’t come around very often, but when they do they are always something special. With two skills contests under his belt, Ben Veale steps up for his first full contest when he meets Minehead’s Dave Lewis.
With Exmouth’s Kenny Daniels having narrowly lost his first two bouts, his match with Tiverton’s Alex Jones, who has lost his only bout to date, means one of these lads will find out what it feels like to have their arm raised as a winner.
For the runner up the search for a first win will go on. Noel Gatehouse has his second full bout when he meets Blandford’s Leon Buongiono., while club mate Sean Harrison has a skills contest with Matt Watts from King Alfreds, and the Highbridge club also supply the opponent for Lympstone’s Jack Mesher to make his debut.
With a large contingent of supporters coming to back the visiting boxers people wishing to attend are advised to get their tickets before the day to avoid disappointment. Tickets priced at £10 are available from Auto Save in Exeter Road or from the Pavilion.
