Den loses first fight

March Boxing Club’s Den Channin lost out to Jake Dykstra of Eastgate ABC at the Bury St. Edmunds Open Show on Friday night.

This was Channin’s first bout and he lost out on points in a hard fought contest. Coach Bernie Wing said: “He needed this bout and I was very pleased with him.”

On the same night at Derby, March’s Purce Baxter lost on a majority points decision to Jordan Lewis of Trinity ABC.

This was another hard fought bout and Dave Cole felt Purce was unlucky not to get the verdict.

On Sunday March’s Danny Hedges lost his NACYP Midlands finals bout against the sharper Mason Lyon of Aston Birmingham by 13-5 at Hinckley.
