Lympstone boxers were busy last weekend with action at both Torbay and Bodmin, writes Neil Parsons.
First up at Torbay Rory Clay (12yrs 38Kgs) met the home club’s more experienced Alex Loewe.
Clay was quickly onto the front foot and did not release a tight grip on the contest from first bell to last.
His relentless aggression ultimately won him a unanimous decision 14-8, 14-7, 12-9.
Connor Lester (19Yrs 70 Kgs) was took on Torbay’s Alex Burnett.
Burnett kept the ever advancing Lester at bay with rasping lefts that perplexed the Lympstone boxer for two rounds.
However, with the home boxer clearly tiring in the third Lester seized the initiative, but Burnett had built up a unassailable lead and ran out a comfortable 15-11, 15-11, 12-10, points winner.
Jared Jones (21Yrs 75Kgs) met the formidable Dylan Courtenay of Camborne.
Jones dominated the first two rounds spearing Courtenay with rapier-like lefts and three punch combinations, but in the third round a lack of concentration saw Jones have to take a good right counter that dropped him for an eight count.
The superior fitness of Jones saw him straight back onto the attack and he went on to claim a unanimous point’s verdict; 12-9, 9-8, 8-8.
Harry Webb (16Yrs 57Kgs) had a wasted trip to Bodmin on Saturday for the Southern Division Junior A BA Championships as his opponent Harry Josef of Camborne failed to make the weight leaving Webb the champion by default!
Webb now challenges for the Western Counties Title in Bristol on April 28.
