Ja­mal con­trols his first contest

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

WIN­NING is the best way to start in a new sport and Ja­mal Kyle did just that, fight­ing his way to vic­tory against his more ex­pe­ri­enced Mo­ran­bah op­po­nent last Satur­day night.

Box­ing in a ring for the first time, Ja­mal in­tim­i­dated Tyreck Buchaman with a bar­rage of com­bi­na­tions and ag­gres­sive rips to the body.

Buchaman would not come out for the third round after Ja­mal dom­i­nated the first two rounds.

“I feel out of my­self at the mo­ment. I am out­side of my body watch­ing,” Ja­mal said after he left the ring.

“It feels so good to win in front of so many Eidsvold peo­ple.

“I am very proud of what I have just done.”

Coach Tim Chap­man could not get the smile off his face and Ja­mal’s win had put the spring back in his step.

“Ja­mal just gave it to him. I couldn’t be any hap­pier right now,” Chap­man said.

“That per­for­mance was out­stand­ing and it played out just as I wanted.”

Box­ing for the first time, Ja­mal trav­elled to the Rock­hamp­ton Box­ing Club tour­na­ment.

The newly-re­formed Eidsvold Box­ing Club sup­ported Ja­mal and will now help pre­pare him for his next fight which is set for Bri­bie Is­land in a few weeks.

“I am not go­ing to jump to con­clu­sions and I want to see him fight another few fights,” fa­ther An­thony Dodd said.

“He went very well tonight and I just saw him fight a high-qual­ity fight.”

Chap­man is train­ing Ja­mal three nights a week and is keen to work with him and see him progress into the fu­ture.
