Mor­gan’s a big hit

The Oban Times - - Sport -

A BALLACHULISH boxer ‘gave as good as he got’ when he com­peted at the Scot­tish Novice Cham­pi­onship.

Mor­gan Lawrence, of Clay­mores Am­a­teur Box­ing Club, Kin­lochleven, fought at the novice cham­pi­onships on Oc­to­ber 22 in Mother­well.

The school­boy fought in the 46kgs cat­e­gory against Cal­lam Slater from Doomhamers Box­ing Club, Dum­fries.

Cal­lum is the cur­rent West­ern Dis­trict school­boy cham­pion and with lots of ex­pe­ri­ence un­der his belt it was a tough con­test for Lochaber’s Mor­gan.

A club spokesper­son said: ‘Mor­gan gave as good as he got through­out a thrilling bout. He never took a step back and showed good move­ment and tech­ni­cal skill.

‘Un­for­tu­nately the Doon­hamers lad was just too strong and ex­pe­ri­enced for Mor­gan and he took the judges de­ci­sion at the end of the three rounds.’
