BOXING: King’s Lynn Youth enjoyed an encouraging time at the Norwich City show.

Polly Booth, aged 15, took on Lexi Randall in her first bout and showed a great level of skill and movement, demonstrating that she has a great future ahead of her.

James Moore was matched against Will Davis, from Norwich City BC. After a hard-fought two rounds, it was even.

Moore then changed tactics in an all-out attack, resulting in a standing count for his opponent to win the contest.

Eastern Counties champion George Harrison, aged 13, boxed at Chelmsford against Home Counties champions Harry Hancock. 

Harrison boxed very well, attacking from the start to pick up a well-deserved unanimous win against a tough opponent.

Vadins Kozoks, aged 15, took on TJ Travis-Brown, from mid-Essex and boxed very well.

All three rounds were hard fought, with the Lynn Youth lad eventually winning with a unanimous decision to maintain his unbeaten record.

Hugh McNaughton, aged 23, was matched with Alex Nicolae, from Ipswich BC. 

McNaughton showed a great level of skill, using an array of combination punches to claim victory in a unanimous win.

Anyone wishing to compete under the England Boxing organisation can join the Lynn Youth boxing team at Heros Gym, in Bryggen Road, on the North Lynn Industrial Estate.
