Ashington’s Joe Mullen in fine form in the ring

Ashington Amateur Boxing Club’s Joseph Mullen has been in action again.

He recently boxed at Alnwick Castle and gained victory over Tom Taylor, of Grainger Park ABC.

Mullen appeared at short notice on the Hylton Castle ABC show venue at Town End Farm WMC, boxing local host opponent Jesse Mead.

And he again came away with an emphatic and unanimous win.

Mullen boxed well behind the jab with the good right hands landing on target, and there was much of the same in the second round.

Mullen then upped the tempo in the last round, putting Mead on the back foot for most of the time.

The next port of call for Mullen will be on Wednesday, May 29, at the Grainger Park show venue at Union Jack SC, Throckley, where he will face Sunderland East End’s Leon Smith, which promises to be a cracking bout.

Coach Alan Buller said: “The hard work which Joe has put in has certainly paid off.”
