Johnstone’s points win

JUNIOR Ashington boxer Josh Johnstone beat Abdul Arshad in a unanimous decision.

The first round saw Johnstone boxing intelligently with some straight shots getting through his opponent’s guard.

Both came out blazing in the second but Johnstone managed to pick some accurate shots, and in the third he upped his work rate and got a good response from his jabs.

Johnstone has a record of three wins from four fights this season and his next fight is tonight (Thursday) for the Blyth Empire School of Boxing Show to be held at the Comrades Club in Ashington. For tickets contact Les Walsh on (01670) 366523.
