It was a successful weekend for a pair of March Boxing Club talents.

Youngsters Josh Tanner and Tarley Smith were both in action in shows around the region, and both secured impressive victories.

Josh, 11, made the short trip to Chatteris to take part in the town’s annual show, and stepped through the ropes again Leicester Railwaymen’s ABC prospect, Abdullah Henley.

Tanner’s quality was evident from the start of the bout and the youngster rocked Henley with a flurry of well-timed punches and managed to evade his opponent’s shots to bag a unanimous decision victory.

Smith, also 11, was in action in Norwich against Sebastian Edwards from Norwich City ABC, and secured an impressive win – his second of a blossoming career.

Both youngsters will pull on their gloves once again this Friday (2) for March ABC’s home show at the Braza Club.
