Weston Boxing Club’s Terry Price is the new Western Counties champion.

WESTON Boxing Club took Terry Price to Barnstaple for the Western Counties Junior Cadet finals for the first tournament of the year.

However, Terry’s opponent failed the weigh-in, but fortunately there was a stand-in, Jake Hooper of Barnstaple, whose opponent failed to turn up.

As soon as the bell went for the first round, Terry measured up his opponent and pounced, forcing his opponent into a neutral corner with a barrage of punches. He kept up the attack and bloodied the Barnstaple lad’s nose and forced the referee to step in and give a count.

Once the standing eight was finished, Terry was back on the onslaught, again the referee jumped in, calling a halt to proceedings early in the first round, giving him a first round victory.

He has a tough task ahead, as his next opponent is English and European schoolboy shampion Adam Hussien.
