BOXING: TILBURY Dockers ABC took part in the recent ABAE Senior Novice competition Essex Round at Harlow.
Nigel Heron Class A U71K boxed a semi-final against Callum Martin of Essex University ABC. Heron boxed really well but found his return to boxing – after a long lay off – too much.
He lost on a unanimous point decision.
In the Class A Under-75kg event, Tey Lynn-Jones boxed against Lewis Hayward of Southend ABC. Lynn-Jones proved too strong and stopped Hayward in the second round. The Tilbury fighter then went on to the Eastern Counties round of the championships. At this event he boxed C Hall of Suffolk’s Triple A ABC and he won with a unanimous points decision. The busy fighter than went to Norwich and boxed Sam Fitt of Aylsham ABC.
Once again Lynn-Jones proved the stronger fighter and won a unanimous points decision to become Eastern Counties Class A U75K champion.
The borough man now meets Karl Holmes of Wodensborough ABC Midland Counties on November 2 in Chatteris. And if he is victorious he will make it through to the quarter finals.
