AFTER a quiet start to the year, Weston Boxing Club has been busy recently.
Scott Davey travelled to Filton Academy, Bristol, for the National Schoolboy Championships. Scott of Worle School, faced unbeaten prospect Tommy Lee Temblett of Broad Plain, Bristol.
The first round was a cagey affair both boxers sizing each other up. The second saw Tommy Lee up the anti and opening up a reasonable lead. Scott had to work hard in the third and pushed it to the wire, only to lose 9-7.
Twelve-year-old Terry Price was another one on his travels. He took on Jordan Lee Walter of The Park, Knowle, Bristol, at the Shepton Mallet Leisure Centre.

Terry controlled this contest from the opening bell. It was not until the third round that Jordan got a look in and then Terry gave him a standing eight count for his antics and was a clear winner.
Wesley Williams of Hewish faced Welsh boxer Connor Turley of Pontypool, at The Civil Service Club, Horfield, Bristol. Wesley’s opponent had three times as many contests as Wesley, but Wesley took the bout to three rounds.

At the same venue, Weston’s 12-year-old Wallace Attwell faced Tyresse Miles of Barton Hill, Bristol, who again had twice as many contests as Wallace. In another fine performance, a body shot to Wallace’s midriff brought an end to the contest midway through the third as Wallace was unable to continue.
Finally, Lewis Hunt, aged 21, travelled to Chippenham to face Arron Chivers of the host club Emeralds. Chivers was another boxer with more than three times as many contests as Lewis. It was thought Lewis had got the decision for all his efforts, but the officials found in favour by split decision to the home town boy.
