MBBC duo im­press at L&S show

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL -

HAV­ING boxed on Fri­day in front of a sell-out crowd on the MBBC home show, the box­ers from Mac­cles­field were out again on Sun­day, this time as a favour to help out Larches and Sav­ick ABC from Pre­ston.

First up was Lu­cas Ear­les in a skills bout against lo­cal boxer Tay­lor Winters from Larches and Sav­ick.

It was clear from the off that Ear­les was a level above Winters as he picked him off at will used the ring and putting on a great dis­play.

Winters pushed for­ward, throw­ing hay­mak­ers that Ear­les just man­aged to avoid.

As it was just a skills con­test, the ref­eree made Ear­les pull back a bit and cover up to prac­tice de­fence more, which the MBBC fighter did, throw­ing a lit­tle re­minder as Winters took ad­van­tage, but it was a bril­liant first bout of the day and a nice work out for Ear­les.

Next up was Joe Straw, again box­ing a lo­cal lad as he took on Sam East­wood, again from Larches and Sav­ick.

There was plenty of sup­port for East­wood and to be hon­est he needed it as he was schooled in the fight by Straw.

East­wood was try­ing to throw flur­ries of shots but Straw re­turned the coun­ters just as fast and it was clear this would be a learn­ing curb for East­wood.

As the bout con­tin­ued, East­wood tired, al­low­ing Straw to land more cleanly.

The judges had no choice but to award Straw the unan­i­mous de­ci­sion, earn­ing him a hard-fought vic­tory.
