Lympstone Boxing club’s Rory Clay (39kgs) notched up another good win on Saturday at the Launceston ABC, writes Neil Parsons.

The 12-year-old was matched with the classy Danny Quinn of Intense ABC, Plymouth.

Clay started strongly, forcing his opponent onto the back foot and the Plymouth boxer had no answer to Clay’s fast combinations.

The Lympstone lad then appeared to take his foot off the pedal in the second and Quinn had some success.

After encouragement from his corner Clay came out re-invigorated for the final session and had the Plymouth boxer on the back foot for the remainder of the contest to gain a comfortable and deserved points win of 10-6, 11-7, 12-8.

James Freer, 14yrs, 58Kgs, had an off night against Wayne Adenas from the Heart of Portsmouth ABC with his corner retiring him midway through the second round.

Aaron Robinson, 12yrs 42Kgs, was on the wrong end of a very controversial Points’ verdict against Kai Cook of Bideford at the Pannier Market Bideford on Saturday.

Robinson powered forward from the first bell putting Cook under relentless pressure for the whole contest and what seemed like a very good win resulted in a disappointing majority verdict to Cook by scores of 10-9, 10-8 to Cook and 12-7 to Robinson.
