Weston boxer Wallace Atwell gained revenge when he beat Barnstaple lad Mitchell Turner.

WESTON Boxing Club member Wallace Attwell graced the canvas at Barnstaple, looking to avenge a defeat against local lad Mitchell Turner.

Thirteen-year-old Atwell set out his stall from the opening bell, leaving nothing to chance and was never in trouble. The final decision was never in doubt as Atwell’s hand was raised successfully at the end.

Terry Price travelled up to Redditch for the semi-final of the Schools Box Cup to take on Evesham’s Joey Johnson.

Both boxers were keen to make the final and from the start, it was a tight contest all the way through to the final bell. Unfortunately, it did not go in 12-year-old Price’s favour.
