Mikey takes top award

Llanelli Star - - Soccer -

CARDI­GAN ABC’s Mikey O’Sul­li­van tri­umphed af­ter a rous­ing toe-to-toe en­counter with Devon op­po­nent Sonny Boyes in Baglan on Satur­day.

Fol­low­ing a thrilling first round which saw both boys go on all-out at­tack, O’Sul­li­van dis­cov­ered his jab in the sec­ond round and man­aged to con­trol his space a bit more to set Boyes up for his dy­na­mite left hook.

The Fish­guard school­boy even­tu­ally worked an open­ing and de­posited Boyes flat on his back for a count of eight.

Al­though Boyes was able to re­sume, O’Sul­li­van pro­ceeded to dom­i­nate the third en route to a unan­i­mous points vic­tory which earned him the boxer of the night tro­phy.

Vic­tory was par­tic­u­larly sweet for the Cardi­gan team as O’Sul­li­van had been on the wrong end of a split de­ci­sion against Boyes in Tiver­ton the pre­vi­ous month.

The Cardi­gan boxer had warmed up for the Baglan con­test with a unan­i­mous points vic­tory over Rhys Jones of Ton­teg at Penyrheol the pre­vi­ous week.

Later in the evening Cardi­gan ABC ju­nior Ioan Croft picked up the boxer of the night award fol­low­ing a unan­i­mous points vic­tory over By­ron Water­house (Trelewis ABC).

Al­though Water­house proved a strong, tough front-foot boxer who kept com­ing for­ward, the Crymych 17-year-old was in con­trol through­out, main­tain­ing a bar­rage of shots from both hands which would have stopped many op­po­nents.
