BOXING: CHADWELL St Mary Boxing Club recently celebrated another three unanimous wins.
Winners on the Berry Boys open show were Wesley Grey, 14 (35kg) who beat Berry’s L Stevens. Wesley gave a gutsy performance and secured himself a unanimous win.
Fourteen-year-old Titus Jokhan (47kg) beat P Connors from Welwyn Garden City ABC.
Making it a total of three wins was Jordan Purkiss, 18 (54kg) who beat Canvey’s C Evans.
Evans came out strong in the first round pushing Purkiss onto his back foot. After a minute with his corner man and head coach Scot Johnston at the end of the first round tactics were changed and the teenager came out in the second round the aggressor and dominated the rest of the bout.
