Welsby keeps cool head to pick off op­po­nent

Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - BOXING

LOUIS Welsby was in ac­tion for Macclesfield Boy’s Boxing Club last week, go­ing up against Ryan Hill from Llay ABC.

The fight was in Hill’s backyard, tak­ing place at the Llay Royal Bri­tish Le­gion in Watts Dyke.

It started off with Hill show­ing a lot of ag­gres­sion throw­ing shots wildly with­out any real tech­nique.

Welsby looked to be in trou­ble but af­ter 30 sec­onds he had got the mea­sure of Hill and started to land shot clean shots that re­sulted in Hill’s first eight count.

Round two fol­lowed the same for­mat but Welsby looked a lot more in con­trol, keep­ing a good work rate and again giv­ing Hill an­other eight count.

As they en­tered the third, Welsby was in to­tal con­trol, boxing well with some beau­ti­ful shots and as the fi­nal bell rang there was no ques­tion that the win­ner was Welsby, unan­i­mous.

Also in ac­tion was Ross Pat­ter­son, who took a bout with only 24-hoursno­tice against Simon Porter from Llay ABC.

Round one saw Porter use his range and land some good shots, look­ing classy in the process.

Pat­ter­son ap­plied the pres­sure in round two, hop­ing that Porter would tire as he kept it at range, but he was get­ting caught.

Round three was by far Pat­ter­son’s best round as he pro­ceeded to push for­ward with some suc­cess but as the fi­nal bell rang he knew he hadn’t done enough, with Porter get­ting the de­ci­sion, though Pat­ter­son was highly praised for step­ping in at the last minute.
