Suc­cess for Jess on re­turn to Poland

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - BOX­ING KEVIN BRAD­BURY

MAC­CLES­FIELD Boys Box­ing Club kicked off the new sea­son in spec­tac­u­lar form with one of their up and com­ing young fe­males, Jess Ze­lazko, head­ing out to Poland for sec­ond time in a few months to take part in the Pol­ish In­ter­na­tional box­ing tour­na­ment San­domierz.

She was part of a team of box­ers made up from the north west and Lu­ton clubs.

As the weigh in was com­pleted, the matches were made and Jess was to box Ang­lika Strzekecka.

Although the lo­cal girl from KEZO Ostrowiec Swi­etokrzyski Box­ing Club was far more ex­pe­ri­enced, Jess was com­fort­able and won the bout.

Both girls came out look­ing con­fi­dent, Jess set­tling into her own rhythm. In her southpaw stance she looked re­ally strong and was tak­ing no pris­on­ers. With a bar­rage of shots she pro­ceeded to push her op­po­nent back with solid strong straight shots, nice crisp right hooks and jabs down the mid­dle with a pun­ish­ing back­hand fol­low­ing up.

As the bell rang for the end of the first round it was clear the lo­cal girl was no match for Jess and rather than putting her through any more pun­ish­ment, the cor­ner threw the towel in with Jess tak­ing a very dom­i­nant vic­tory on pol­ish soil.

MBBC were elated as this was the sec­ond time she had ven­tured abroad and re­turned the vic­tor, de­spite be­ing just 14 years old. The fu­ture cer­tainly looks bright for Jess “Iron Lady” Ze­lazko!
