Islington BC duo make their point with wins, as club also gives out end of term awards
PUBLISHED: 14:00 17 January 2019
Islington Boxing Club had two winners on two of their most recent shows, with both adding to wins from the club’s own show.
Cianan Campbell, 10, faced a familiar opponent in Paddy McDonagh from host club White Hart Lane BA at 37kg as the two met for a third time.
The first had been a skills bout, while McDonagh was the next on a split decision, but Campbell boxed sensibly to catch his rival throughout and looked the more confident as the contest went on to earn a unanimous decision.
Charlie Roche could be forgiven for his slow start against Jake Brown (Fisher ABC) as the 75kg bout came up at short notice.
Roche admitted he had been attending Christmas parties during the week but pressured Brown throughout with his crowd pleasing forward approach.
Brown was floored in the second round and Roche went on to claim a unanimous points win.
