CHATTERIS Boxing Club fighter Jordan Tilsley has won a Mid Anglia Merit award.

The award recognises hard work and dedication to the sport and the winner is voted for by boxing clubs throughout the region.

Tilsley, 14, will be fighting in the quarter-finals of the Golden Gloves on February 18 and is just one of an exciting group of fighters at the Chatteris club.

Nineteen-year-old Paddy Wright was in action on Friday night at the March Braza Club and he recorded a majority points decision over Rob Collins from the Lions Club.

Newest arrival to the Chatteris club, Shane Sadler, was unlucky not to get the verdict after a very close fight on the same bill.

Chatteris BC trainer Paul Gill said: "Paddy was a little over his ideal weight but he fought OK. He will get much sharper with more gym work and fights."

He added: "Shane boxed really well and the decision could have gone wither way. We have spent a lot of time changing his style and with a little more work on his combinations, he will be very good.
