Ashford Boxing Club travelled to the Gravesham open show on Thurdsay 18th, with boxers Dan Norman & Bradley Ballantyne. Both boxers weighed-in, with Bradley’s bout being made at 60kg. Dan Norman weighed-in at 68kg but was giving away to much weight to his opponent and the bout was called off.
So this left Bradley to represent Ashford ABC against Gravesham ABC’s Alfie Essex. With the boxers being the first bout of the evening.
1st round, saw both boxers trying to take command, with Alfie Essex boxing behing his Southpaw stance, and Bradley pushing forward to set the pace.
2nd round, with instruction from his corner Bradley dominated the round with solid right hand shots to the head and counters to the body, with Alfie holding on trying to tie Bradley up, to stop his attacks.
3rd round, saw both boxers feeling the pace and looking to work more behind there jabs and not give anything away. At the end of the bout both boxers where given a generous round of applause by both there supporters!
When both boxers were brought to the centre of the ring for the announcement, Bradley was named the winner by way of majority decision. deserving another good round of applause.
This was Bradley’s 5th win in 9 contest to-date. With coaches Andy Wilford, Dennis Jarvis & Jamie Carter very pleased with Brad’s performance, in his second time against a Southpaw.
Well Done Brad!!
