March Boxing Club had a disappointing night at the Schoolboys Quarter Finals in Norwich on Saturday

Cole Stevens lost on points to Robert Beck of Repton ABC in the 12-year-old 38kg category.

Beck was was just too good for Cole.

He had the answers for Cole’s style, but the March youngster can hold his head up high as he kept battling on.

There was also a points defeat for March’s Ambrose Draper against Bradley Barclay from Romford ABC in the 15-year-old 52kg section.

Bradleys tactics were to use his long reach and when in close he would hold.

Ambrose got through his long reach time and time again, but was stopped by Bradley holding.

It was a very close bout but Bradley took the decision on a points win.
