Hedges is a cut above

MARCH boxer Danny Hedges was in top form to score an impressive win at Doncaster on Friday night.

The 15-year-old made a slow start to the bout against Nathan Owen of Parson Cross Sheffield, but certainly upped his game in rounds two and three for a majority points decision.

Another March boxer Mark Crosby came up against a very good fighter Ossie Osborne, also from Sheffield, and lost out on a majority decision.

The first two rounds were very close, but the 17-year-old Crosby got a little sloppy in the third round and it cost him.

The two boxers could cross swords again in the ABA Junior Championships next month.
