Boxers back on their travels

Weston boxer Scott Davey travelled to Torquay to face undefeated Alex Loewy.

AFTER a successful home tournament, Weston Boxing Club were back on their travels.

Scott Davey, aged 12, of Worle School and son of coach Sheridan Davey, travelled to the Riviera Centre, Torquay to face undefeated son of Torbay coach Alex Loewy.

The home boy came out firing from the opening bell, keen to please his local following, but Davey boxed well on the back foot.

The second round was much the same, but Davey was having success with his right hand. It looked like Davey had won the first two rounds, but as Loewy was the aggressor, Davey senior told Scott to pick up his attack for the third round.
