MARCH Boxing Club’s Danny Hedges and Charlie Stevens are through to the Junior ABC Championships quarter-finals at Brentwood on Tuesday, April 19.

The 15-year-old Hedges won his Eastern Counties final bout against Kevan Davis from Billericay ABC at Lynnsport on Saturday. Hedges was flat out in all three rounds and blew a very good boy away.

Coach Bernie Wing said: “If he boxed like this all the time he would not have so many defeats on his card.”

Stevens, who received a bye in the finals, came out on top in a supporting bout, beating Alan Cook (Bwynei ABC Wales) on points.

Stevens had to be at his best as this was a top Welsh boy. He came through this with the better punching. He needed this bout but still came out a comfortable points win.
