Boxing Clever

BOXING in Runcorn has never been better!


That's the message coming out of Runcorn Boys Boxing Club after a highly successful fight night in which youngsters of all ages showed off their skills.
"It was a great night," said club coach John Lally, who helped organise the event with match-maker Rab Shearer.


"We had a full house and got lots of support and all the lads showed they are coming along well."


Among the highlights were 15-year-old Paul Jackson adding to his already impressive unbeaten record by winning every round of his bout, and 17-year-old Stuart Lee forcing a stoppage against Brian Fallbrick of Leyland ABC, Blackburn.


There were narrow defeats for youngster Declan Garaven, 11, of St Clement's, against Brian Leahy of Kingscoat ABC, and Robbie Prince, 13, of The Grange who lost on points to another Leyland ABC fighter.


Meanwhile 14-year-old Lewis Mogg, also of The Grange, was praised as the club's 'most improved boxer' by his coaches after a brave display against his more powerful opponent, and James Hignett, 15, showed his commitment by battling on with a bleeding nose before being withdrawn.
There were disappointments for Tom Cavanagh of Bankfield school after his opponent forgot his licence and could not fight, and Darren Lally of Halton High whose opponent weighed in too heavy.

Champ crowned

A RUNCORN schoolboy has been crowned area boxing champion after overcoming a tricky opponent in Liverpool.
Paul Larkin, aged 15, will fight his Manchester counterpart after extending his undefeated record to three bouts with a comprehensive victory over Luke MacDonald of Long Lane ABC.


Cheered on by dozens of friends and family, Paul, a pupil at The Grange, won every round to the delight of his coach, John Lalley.
"Paul boxed fantastic. He boxed a good lad, a southpaw, and I was apprehensive, but he handled it exceptionally well,"said John, who runs Runcorn Boys Boxing Club, said.


The victory at the Golden Belt Championships in Liverpool, means Paul is Liverpool and Runcorn Area Champion.
Also in action for the club have been youngster Ryan Potter and adult amateur, Danny Wells.


Ryan, aged 11, from Victoria Road, Runcorn, was unlucky to narrowly lose to Neil Hughes of Maelor ABC at an event in Wrexham, last Friday night.


Danny, aged 22, from Hallwood Park, boxed brilliantly to win every round against Ally Jones, also from Maelor ABC in his first contest.

Jersey boxing trip for club

RUNCORN Amateur Boxing Club had a mixed time of things when they travelled to Jersey at the weekend.


Lee Carrington failed to win over the judges in only his second bout as the 22-year-old welterweight fell to a majority decision against Pisces ABC's Alan Begbie in a three-rounder.


However, 19-year-old light heavyweight Lee Simpson was in stunning form to defeat Pisces' Jan Poleszczuic in three rounds.
Friday also saw a victory for 12-year-old debut boxer Jack Whittingham against Dominic Shepherd, of Nottingham's Bilbora ABC at Kidsgrove Working Men's Club in Stoke.
