Fenland’s best fighters show talent in front of full house at Chatteris ABC

CHATTERIS Amateur Boxing Club was buzzing on Saturday night as a full house watched Fenland’s best young fighters in action.

Newly crowned Club’s for Young People British Champion Jordan Gill returned to the ring with another triumph, beating Kester Parish-Jones of Coventry.

The 16 year-old continued the sparkling from which saw him bag the title two weeks ago, countering his opponent’s power with his own fitness and ferocity to win by unanimous decision.

His fellow Fenland fighters also took the chance to showcase their talent, with 13 bouts of all weights and ages at the Cromwell Sports Hall.

Young star Percy Baxter put in a commanding performance to take his fight in the first round while 11 year-old Chatteris fighter Dean Baxter lost on points to his Donnington opponent.

A hard-hitting local derby saw Luke McVicar from Chatteris overcome Mark Crosby from March by majority verdict.

Chatteris fighter Richard Caluanan fought courageously but was beaten by Ethan Pick from Earl Shilton, in a narrow majority decision, and Jordan Tilsley, also from Chatteris, was unlucky not to be awarded his fight against a Cheshunt fighter.
