Chadwell pair fight at Hayes Boxing Gym
2:00pm Wednesday 28th November 2012 in Sport
BOXING: TWO talented Chadwell St Mary ABC fighters were picked to represent the Essex Amateur Boxing Association in the Essex V North West London county match held at Hayes Boxing Gym in Middlesex.
Lance Toussaint,20, (64kg) and Shaun Clark, 10, (33kg) were both in ring action in Hayes.
Clark had his first skills bout in preparation of being carded to enable him to compete in amateur boxing from January – when he has his 11th birthday.
Clark, who has been training hard in preparation to fight, displayed a mature performance against the much taller M Moriaty from Hayes.
Clark put on a real show including a well-timed Ali-shuffle to win over the crowd and officials. Next to box for Team CSM was Toussaint who proved to be far too strong and dominated the bout from the bell. Toussaint non stop connected very hard blows with his back hand and well timed uppercuts that the referee stopped the competition as Walsh from Dale Youth ABC was unfit to continue.
Toussaint earned himself an extra award and was presented with the boxer of the night award.
