ASHINGTON Amateur Boxing Club were at the Marriot Hotel in Gosforth recently with junior Shane Wood and senior Brad Watson on the bill.
Wood had been out for ten months but faced Newbiggin boxer Carl McCloughlan.
Wood fought well but it was McCloughlan who came out on top with a hard fought victory.
Watson fought James Bell, of Cruddas Park Amateur Boxing Club, who was ten years his senior.
He boxed intelligently and came out on top against the more experienced opponent.
Coach Alan Buller said that both boxers were a credit to the club whilst he also praised their hard work in training.
