Another win for Ashington boxer Josh Johnstone

Ashington ABC boxer Josh Johnstone completed a quick fire double last week.

Last time out at Houghton District Show, Johnstone defeated the home club’s Tommy Dixon by a split decision, and last week the Ashington youngster beat the same opponent, on this occasion by a unanimous verdict at the Bowes ABC show held at Grindon SC.

Ashington ABC head coach Alan Buller said: “Josh boxed well from the first bell to the last.

“He has now won four out of five bouts with his only blip in Scotland against champion Ben Grant – and there is to be a return contest in the near future.

“Josh has made a fantastic start to the season and is a credit to the club.”
