Refuse to Lose event held in memory of former coach
Romford Boxing Club ended their season in fine style with some solid bouts in their Refuse to Lose show at the North Romford Community Centre in Collier Row.
The event was held in memory of coach Daren Howe and his family were in attendance to hand out the best Romford boxer award, which went to Ethan Tisbury.
The 14-year-old produced a commanding display against a Barnstaple ABC hope, and he immediately got his opponent on to the ropes before forcing a first round stoppage and maintaining an unbeaten start to his amateur career from his four bouts to date.
Paul Claydon Jnr was back in the ring following a long lay-off and despite putting In a fine display against a Smallholdings ABC boxer, the 18-year-old was edged out on points.
The same fate fell the way of heavyweight Jack Craig, who also took on an opponent from Smallholdings. The 23-year-old was conceding weight, and just lost out in a bruising encounter.
Two late pull-outs forced 15-year-old’s Kallum Hayden and Harry Cooper to put in a skills contest, and both performed well against Kemsing ABC and Holland Park ABC hopes respectively.
M Imray was taking part in his first bout where he came up against M McCormack from Waltham Forest in a skills contest and the 12-year-old produced a strong showing to show plenty of promise for the future.
