WESTON Amateur Boxing Club travelled to the BAWA Club, British Aerospace, Filton, for the final tournament of the season.Broadoak student Oliver Giddings (13), represented the club in only his second contest against host club National Smelting Tyler Davies. Giddings moved well in the opening round, sticking out clean jabs and following through with a straight right hand. Davies came forward throwing a flurry of punches that were ineffective and mostly missing or catching Giddings' gloves and elbows.The second round went much the same way, Giddings working the cleaner straighter punches. In the third round, Giddings picked up the tempo, flooring his opponent with a crisp right.However, the referee deemed to call it a slip, rubbing Davies' gloves together and proceeding without a count. When the results were read, Davies was given a points decision to the bemusement of the Weston corner. The MC and Davies' coach felt Giddings had won. Giddings will be back next season and has a great potential of going a long way, and is a possible product for the 2012 Olympic Games.After his recent win at Southampton, Lewis Hunt was full of confidence when he faced Martin McDonagh, of the Downend club. Hunt is a strong and aggressive boxer and has inflicted defeats or standing counts to his previous opponents.McDonagh boxed wisely, slipping Hunt's big punches and as soon as Hunt got in close, McDonagh grappled and pushed him away for the three rounds and was given the decision on points.Weston will be back next season with a stronger and more experienced squad, with a host of newcomers waiting in the wings. Training will continue throughout the summer.For details, contact John Cleary on 07786 371164. The club would also like to thank everyone for their support over the season.
