Ashington boxer Huntley wins unanimous decision

Ashington ABC’s 12-year-old Liam Huntley faced Jacob Evans of Wigton ABC at the Shepherd’s Inn, Carlisle.

Evans was in trouble from the first bell as Huntley never took a backwards step.

In the second Huntley upped the tempo, and after each round in the corner he took everything in which was asked of him.

In the third and last round, he switched with some good shots to both the head and body.

The outcome was a unanimous victory for the Ashington boxer.

Head coach Alan Buller said: “Well done to Liam, he is a credit to the Ashington team.”

The following morning, Ashington female boxer Daryle Jobling travelled to Birtley to box in the female championships.

Jobling went through to the next round with a walkover because no one else was in her weight category.
