STEVE Yorath and the European Boxing Federation hosted a fantastic night of entertainment at Weston Football Club. No less than 10 Weston fighters, including Sheridan Davey, Shane Main, Justin Weldon, Jason Rhys-gill and Gary Bettle took part.The show started with an entertaining boxing demonstration and then continued with Weston fighters producing some fantastic wins. Gary Bettle, a English champion kickboxer, won his fight on points and showed that he was back in top form to beat a well conditioned fighter from Bristol. Justin Weldon had an excellent fight and disposed of his opponent in the first round. Shane Main showed true class in his fight and stopped the challenger from Slough in the first round. He looked in good shape and moved on his toes to totally out-class his opponent with some blistering combinations. The fight of the night was Sheridan Davey for the EBF English title. This fight was a war and Sheridan had to dig in deep to beat Bernard from Cardiff. The challenger was an extremely well built figure and packed some massive punches that shook Davey, who worked behind an excellent defence and won the fight to retain his title.The next show will be held in mid-September and will showcase Weston's top fighters once again. Steve Yorath would like to thank everyone that supported the show. For more information on boxing classes please call 01934 645006.
