On Saturday 3rd October, Ashford Boxing Club & boxer Jack Ewbank attended the Southern Counties final. Held at The Royal Harbour Academy, Upper School, Stirling way, Ramsgate, Kent. Jack had reached this stage by firstly winning the Kent title and then winning the Kent v Hampshire round (Southern Counties semi-final) In the final Jack was up against Mohammad Yasin of Woking ABC’s. Round 1 saw both boxers start with caution and trying to draw each other in. Jack led and countered with some rear-hand straights followed by sharp left hooks. Mohammad tried to respond, but Jack slipped and rolled well to nullify his counters. The 2nd round saw Mohammad trying to set the pace, but Jack threw out his jab effectively, followed by straight rights to the body and left hooks to the head. Mohammed had a couple of successes but none that took any effect on Jack and his confidence. In the 3rd and final round of this 3×2 minute championship final. Both boxers went straight in with Jack getting the better of the exchange, landing a nice left hook, right uppercut, left hook combination. Jack’s lead left hook was now finding his opponents chin nicely. Followed by rights to the body, then switching back to a double left hook to the body then head. Jack had now got Mohammed on the back foot until the final bell. This was to gain Jack a unanimous points win and Southern Counties 69kg Championship. Jack will now box in the next round Southern Counties v London Counties, the weekend 17th October.
