Boxing sensations Charlie Stevens and Jordan Gill cruise into ABA quarter-finals

HARD-HITTERS Jordan Gill and Charlie Stevens have cruised into the national quarter-finals of the Junior Amateur Boxing Association Championships.

Chatteris star Gill, who turns professional in July, broke his shell-shocked opponent’s nose in a unanimous points victory in Surrey.

Meanwhile former March Amateur Boxing Club talent Stevens, from Upwell, beat his opponent 15-1 in another one-sided bout.

The 16-year-old said: “It was a whooping but I was actually disappointed because he shouldn’t have lasted a round with me. I didn’t fight very well but I obviously did enough.”

Reigning champion Stevens left March ABC for West Ham Boys ABC last year.

He said: “It’s a top class club. Almost everyone that I’m training with is a national champion and they all want to stay at the top. I’m training as hard as possible and we’re all pushing each other.

“I’m pretty confident in the ABAs this year. If I perform to my best, I know I could have it in the bag.”
