Earlier this month, several fighters travelled to Plains Farm ABC in Sunderland.

Joey Matthews showed a well disciplined style of boxing against a durable opponent, using his reach well and picking his shots to the body and head. He won on points.

Aaron Wilkin had a rematch with a heavyweight from Plains Farm.

Aaron beat him unanimously last time out and stepped it up with a second round stoppage this outing.

Bradley Goldring won on points against his opponent — the strong Josh Croucher, from Grainger Park ABC.

The following day, Catterick boxers travelled to Crowle ABC in Scunthorpe.

Luke Hutchinson boxed in his second skills bout.

He boxed well from the middle of the ring forcing the opponent into a fast paced bout, switching his attacks moving his head and feet very well forcing his opponent to miss leaving himself open for Luke’s ferocious attacks. There was no winner due to it being a skills bout.

Liam Lawlor made his debut in a skills bout. He scored lovely long shots on the outside and found his range and used it very efficiently landing great combinations on the back foot.

Charlie Glistrup joined the club after having four years out with a record of 4-0-4. He has trained hard and has worked constantly with Jai Simpson to build his confidence there is no better sparring partner.

Charlie boxed a tough Crowle fighter and caught his opponent with the cleaner shots and pushing the pace in the third round to take the win.

Coach Justin Barnes said: “All the coaches are mega proud of the boxers and we are also very thankful for the parents and club mates that follow CBC around the region.

“We may only be a small club but we certainly pack a punch and we have put Catterick back on the boxing map.”
