Romford Boxing Club's Kallum Hayden and Ethan Tisbury were in action at Barnstaple


Duo celebrate wins in Devon

Romford ABC continued their unbeaten run at the Barnstaple Annual Pannier Market Open Show in Devon last weekend.

Kallum Hayden was one of two young boxers who made the 500-mile round trip for action and he picked up an excellent points win in a very tough contest against a home hope in his first full contest to date in the 55kg category.

Ethan Tisbury was next up and the 14-year-old produced a near faultless display when he met Willis Robson of Barnstaple ABC.

Like Hayden, he gave his opponent a standing eight count as he recorded his fifth straight win and kept up his 100 per cent unbeaten run.

Delighted Romford coach Paul Claydon senior said: “Considering the journey and the local opposition both boys put on tremendous displays and did the club and themselves proud.

“Our club have never lost a bout in three visits to the annual event which in itself is a remarkable achievement.”
