Weekends round UP..!

We received a call on Thursday asking for a skills bout for Frankie Wood at the Waltham Forest Show in London on Friday, the show had dropped to 6 bouts and the matchmaker was calling in help to save the show.

Frankie jumped in and Brad cornered. Frankie put in another good display.



Saturday - Harwich - Kip took Michael Chalkley out on his first bout for the club since joining from Rayleigh during the season.
Mike is an elite open class senior and boxed 3 x 3 minute rounds - taking a very good win to open his account with the club, well done Mike.

Saturday - Danson ( Bexley ) - Jim and Jodie took 2 up and coming schoolboy boxers out for a skills bout.
Finley boxed superb and gained some more ring experience.
Kenza had his first taste of competition boxing and not only done well, he was awarded the best away boxer of the show..! Well done everyone.

Sunday - Jim, Les and Terry Emmins took George Liddard and Jim Head to Bristol to compete in the National Semi Finals of the schoolboy Championships.
Both lads had very hard bouts against the London Champions.
George won on a unanimous decision and now goes to Sheffield next Saturday for the Finals. Jim, came close but will be looking to box again as soon as possible.

Saturday 30th May Dinner Show - NO Excuses..!

 

Brighton Show - Thursday 14th May

The Billericay and Wickford Boxing Club took a team of 6 Boxers down to Brighton on Thursday to compete at the fantastic Thistle Hotel, which is opposite the main pier on the seafront. This venue is one of the best on the circuit and the host's Brighton City Boxing Club are one of our club's closest friends, true boxing people that put the boxers and supporters before anything else.!

Bobby Watson - Only back in the gym for a couple of sessions after a bad cold travelled all the way down for a skills bout, against a local lad. Both boxers were outstanding and had a great bout.

James Eaglesfield - Has been in the gym almost every possible day it has been open over the last 4 weeks and the fitness showed in his bout against a very game and skillful lad from the host club. A terrific display from both lads with James getting the well desrved win on his debut bout.

Mark Emmerson - Took a bout at very short notice after a great sparring session at the gym, the matchmaker got straight on the phone to capitalise while Mark was on top form. Mark, fresh from a job interview arrived at the venue, got weighed in, changed and boxed outstanding. Mark won the bout on a Unanamous decision on all 3 judges score cards.

Liam Hunt - was matched up against a very experienced boxer from the home club. Liam is one of the most improved boxers in the gym lately and is showing what a great prospect he can become with the right team around him. Coach Jim Head commented on how sharp and skillful Liam is looking. A great win after some long hours in the gym, well deserved for a smashing lad.

Sean Crawford - was up against a local favourite who soon showed why he has such a big fan base, after landing a few big bombs that got the whole venue on their feet. This was one of the most exciting bouts you would ever see in amateur boxing and we are hoping to have a rematch on our dinner show on 30th May, although Sean may not be too keen :) Another win for Team B & W.



James ( Ozzy ) Osborne - Only in the gym for a few months had his first outing yesterday and came up against a lad with much more gym time under his belt. Ozzy has sparred recently very well against allcomers including a current National Champion, so was well prepared. Ozzy picked up a few knocks but never stopped and dug in to hammer out his first win too.

All in all - 6 Boxers on tour and all coming back to the gym undefeated too.

Just over 4 weeks ago, the gym suffered one of their worst runs ever, mainly due to the move and upset of training times etc. The gym made a few changes and since then the club has been back on track. There is always a reason for being disciplined ..!

Thanks to all the boxers that travelled down, especially on a working day, where most juggled things around to make sure they could compete.

Thanks to the coaches that both lost work due to their committment to the club.

Thanks to the supporters that also made that long journey to give the team a lift and get behind them - Brilliant..!

Thanks to the Brighton City club for making the team feel so welcome, they are a model of how all clubs should treat their boxers and guests.!
 
George Liddard - Jim Head - Rio Emmins.
 
 
George boxed on Saturday in the National Quarter Finals of the Schoolboy Championships, held at Kings Lynn against the champion from the Home Counties region.
 
George stepped on the gas and boxed well to win on another unanamous points decsion, securing his place in the National Semi Finals that are being held next Sunday in Bristol against Repton's Joseph King.
