Attward an­swers late call for Kids­grove bout

Macclesfield Express - - TIME TRIP - BOX­ING

AF­TER tak­ing a bout at 24 hours no­tice, MBBC coaches and young boxer Scott Attward made the short trip to Kids­grove for a warm up ahead of his bout on the Beartown an­nual show.

His op­po­nent was a very ex­pe­ri­enced, ca­pa­ble boxer, Tommy Ward from the Tom Lowe Club.

This was a very an­tic­i­pated bout as there were a lot of home fans making them­selves heard. The bell rang, they touched gloves and went to work – Ward strong, mus­cu­lar and ready against the slick mov­ing Attward.

Both lads threw some nice com­bi­na­tions but Attward was catch­ing with shots that seemed to come from nowhere.

Ward was game but seemed to tire as the bell rang.

Round two and again Attward was throw­ing shots at will and catch­ing ev­ery time. Ward was on the back foot on oc­ca­sions which didn’t ap­pear to be his style and he would push on ev­ery so of­ten, show­ing heart.

But Attward was edg­ing in front all the time be­fore land­ing a preacher straight on the but­ton and Ward re­ceived an eight count.

Round three and Ward was strong again from the bell but with Attward now hav­ing the mea­sure of him he started to look com­fort­able and in con­trol.

It got scrappy at times but it was Attward that was hav­ing the suc­cess and as the fi­nal whis­tle went they touched gloves in ap­pre­ci­a­tion of an ex­cel­lent dis­play.

Attward was the win­ner on a unan­i­mous de­ci­sion.
