Lo­s­tock test for box­ers

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - BOXING

MACCLESFIELD Boy’s Boxing Club had an­other busy night af­ter three of their box­ers com­peted at the Lo­s­tock Work­ing Man’s Club in North­wich.

The main event saw Tom Mar­lowe in ac­tion for MBBC, tak­ing the fight at 5:30pm that day.

He went up against Do­minic Wil­son from South Ch­e­sire ABC, and as the bell rang Wil­son went straight to work com­ing un­der Mar­lowe’s straight shots and work­ing the body and head.

Round two saw Mar­lowe get his mea­sure of Wil­son as he showed some bril­liant boxing abil­ity, step­ping in throw­ing shots as Wil­son trun­dled for­ward not quite reach­ing his tar­get.

Round three saw both lads tire but it was clear that Mar­lowe was the bet­ter boxer, and that earned him a split de­ci­sion win just hours af­ter tak­ing the fight.

Josh An­der­ton was also in ac­tion in an­other skills bout against a much taller op­po­nent, Kyran Jani from South Cheshire ABC.

It was straight shots only in the first and An­der­ton’s de­fence was im­pec­ca­ble as he took the lead hand shots from Jani, not one scor­ing a clean shot.

It was more of the same in round two, and three, with An­der­ton turn­ing it up to­wards the end of the fight and looked re­ally com­fort­able through­out the fight.

Den­nis Acre­man was also com­pet­ing in a skills bout against Ast­ley VIPs, with both lads find­ing suc­cess in rounds one and two.

Acre­man had lots of suc­cess in the fi­nal round though, work­ing right up to the fi­nal bell in an ex­cel­lent con­test.
