Weston Boxing Club were back in action, with two members travelling to Swansea.

WESTON Boxing Club were back in action a week after their successful home show and travelled to Swansea with two young boxers whom won that evening.

Terry Price, aged 15, was the first to don the black and gold colours in a 50kg contest against Jamie James of Splott, who is two times Welsh champion and a Welsh international with weight advantage and experience.

This was always going to be a tough task for the Weston lad, but Terry is a top level boxer and this contest was pure class, both boxers displaying great speed and skill. It was only James’ strength advantage that gave him the edge to take a points decision.

Fourteen-year-old Wesley Williams was next, facing host club boxer Liam Reynolds of Premier ABC, again giving away experience.

Wesley was determined to win, showing straight hard punching from the opening bell, dominating the round. The second round again was much the same and the contest seemed all over.

However, the third round Reynolds gave it one final shot to make it more of an even round, but Wesley had done more than enough to make it a comfortable points victory.
