March Amateur Boxing Club duo qualify for Junior ABA quarter-finals

TWO talented boxers from Fenland tasted success at the weekend during the Eastern Counties Junior Finals in King’s Lynn.

March Amateur Boxing Club’s duo Danny Hedges and Charlie Stevens have now both qualified for the Junior ABA quarter-finals at Brentwood on April 16.

Hedges, 15, beat Billericay ABC’s Kevan Davis on points at Lynnsport to qualify while Stevens - who had already reached the April 16 showcase - beat Bwynei (Wales) ABC’s Alan Cook on points in a supporting bout.

March ABC coach Bernie Wing said: “Danny came flying out of the corner

and blew a very good boy away. If he boxed like this all the time he would not have had so many losses on his card.”

• CHATTERIS ABC received a �105 boost after the town’s Conservative Club donated funds raised at a singles dominoes competition. John Deighton won the event with Andy Ginton finishing runner-up.
