Su­per show

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL -

from New Era boxing club, Carl Broughton. This was over three two minute rounds and Pat­ter­son went to work from the off, putting Broughton un­der pres­sure and catch­ing him with beau­ti­ful clean shots but also tak­ing shots on the way in.

This was a re­ally tough bat­tle for both as they gave it their all and as the bout con­tin­ued it was re­ally hard to call as the bell rang, but it was Broughtin who got the raised hand on an­other split de­ci­sion.

Bout 12 fea­tured Ben Rowark go­ing up against Welsh in­ter­na­tional G War­bur­ton from Dyf­frn ABC. This was go­ing to be a fan­tas­tic con­test over three three minute rounds, and both kids soon got the mea­sure of each other.

They pro­ceeded to put on a bril­liant per­for­mance with the bout shift­ing one way then the other, but it was clear Rowark was hav­ing more suc­cess with his punches, catch­ing War­bur­ton with nice shots and as the bell rang at the end of round three they both em­braced with mu­tual re­spect for each other ahead of a wellde­served unan­i­mous win for Rowark.

Bout 13 was Chris Bowes against Hamin Mah­mood. Bowes was the taller boxer with Mah­mood shorter and stock­ier, and both went to town on Bowes keep­ing it straight and long with Mah­mood slip­ping and throw hooks as he ex­ploded for­ward.

Both box­ers were do­ing well, but Mah­mood’s shots had a bit more sting in them and this re­sulted in Bowes tak­ing an eight count in round two.

The shot was bang on tar­get and not many would have re­cov­ered from such a punch but Bowes went straight back in there and tried to put it on Mah­mood as the fight ended.

It was an­other close con­test but the eight count swayed the judges in favour of Mah­mood, who won on an­other split.

The last con­test of the evening was a su­per heavy­weight bout with both box­ers mak­ing their de­but.

These lads were tow­er­ing over the ref­eree as MBBC’s Ste­fan Singer was against Mike On­a­banjo from Stock­port Col­lege.

Round one saw them start as they meant to go on with both lads throw­ing big bombs at each other.

The con­test shifted one way then back, and both lads were big units and tired as the bout went on. Just as we neared the end of the sec­ond round, On­a­banjo caught Singer and the ref­eree jumped in to give an­other eight count for the MBBC boxer, but he was fine and they went back to war.

By the end of the third round, both box­ers had earned the re­spect of the packed au­di­ence and the win­ner was awarded to On­a­banjo in what was a fan­tas­tic bat­tle.

It ended a fan­tas­tic MBBC show, who now look to kick on for the rest of 2017.
