Billericay and Wickford Boxing - National Finalist's

Saturday 13'th December saw another 2 boxers from the Billericay and Wickford Boxing Club compete in a National Final.   That is an incredible 9 National Finals for boxers from the club since it was reformed 6 years ago.

Saturday saw 2 of the ever expanding Junior Squad members box their way into a National Final, after picking up County, Regional and Southern Titles along the way.

Luke Hasson ( 1999 ) - One of the most improved boxers from the Lake Meadows Gym over the last 6 months, was up against the Northern Area Champion that had an incredible 12 wins from 13 bouts.
Luke really shone in the 2nd round, showing the kind of skills you would expect to see from an open class / more experienced boxer.  Luke just missed out on the decision, but has earned the respect from the coaching staff and supporters throughout these championships for a great achievement of boxing his way into a National Final.  

Ollie Hood ( 1998 ) - One of the newest boxers from the Lake Meadows Gym, Ollie has had some really tough bouts of late, so deserved to be in the Finals too. Ollie has stamped his name into the record books by making a National Final after only being in the gym for 2 seasons. Ollie's bout was very close again, but just missing out on the Title by a split decision. Again, it was good for the coaching staff to watch Ollie mature as a boxer throughout the championships and we are sure there's plenty more to see.

Massive thanks to Jimmy Head, who has been in the gym, at ringside and behind the boys all season.

Thanks to all those that came to support the lads, especially The 2 Joe's and Jack Mc and his Dad Garry, who gave up tickets to the big Arsenal game so they could support the lads.

The gym will be relocating soon to the new base in Wickford, where I am sure the club will double in size, which will give the boxers more opportunities in the future.   The race will be on to see who can take the first National Title back to the new home.

CHAMPIONS - ALL OF THEM...!

 
ANOTHER 6 ESSEX COUNTY CHAMPIONS
 
Billericay ( and Wickford ) Boxing Club had 4 lads in the NATIONAL Quarter Finals today in Lewisham.
 
Joe Gonella returned to the ring after beating the London Champion last week in the National 1/4 finals. Joe is one of the most improved boxers in the Lake Meadows gym this year. Joe put in another quality performance today but just missed out on the Final place, with a very close split decision.
 
Luke Hasson fresh from a Regional finals win recently, boxed today against a very skilful opponent. Luke forced the pace and forced a standing 8 count before taking a well deserved win.
 
Harry The H Bomb exploded again, after beating one of the best lads in the country last week, but was up against a very slick opponent today that seemed to spoil everything. Harry was very unlucky not to get the nod. Harry has improved hugely lately too.
 
Ollie Hood boxed well over 3 rounds again, using the experience from recent tough bouts to good effect. Ollie has come a long way in just 2 seasons.   Ollies opponent today said after he was brilliant..!   His opponent also came to wish Ollie well after - That's the side of this sport we all love..!
 
All in all, the Billericay and Wickford Boxing Club, entered 6 lads into the Essex Round, with all 6 taking county titles.  And 2 have made the National Finals - CHAMPIONS - ALL OF THEM ...!

In the RED Corner - Luke Hasson - Regional Champion.
 
 
Saturday 23'rd November 2014.
 
 
B W Boxing Club were out in force last night on the Berry Show in Laindon, with an amazing 7 boxers on the programme, they were a mixture of learning bouts and championship bouts.
 
A few of the championship boys had already had confirmation of their walkover to the next round and some had to box off against the best in the Eastern Counties ( Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire ).
 
JOSH  - had his 1'st competitive bout against a very slick lad from Canvey, both lads done themselves proud, before the decision came through on the computer as a draw and the judges were put on the spot for a winner - The Canvey lad caught the judges eye with a split decision.
 
GEORGE - had a step up in opponents from the Small Holding Club, George knuckled down and put in another tough performance before getting the nod on a unanamous decision.
 
OLLIE - had another learning bout against a very strong and fluid boxer, Ollie competed well and will take the experience with him over the 3 rounds to the gym.
 
JACK Mc - showed us all what he is capable of boxing an experienced and tidy lad from the top Attleborough club before getting the win on a unanamous decision.
 
LUKE - dug in again and showed us what a big improvement this lad is making week in week out. training well and sparring well, a great win for Luke.
 
HARRY - This lad won bout of the season at last years presentation, he has grown in strength and more importantly skill over the last year, another great performance yesterday after giving his lad 3 counts, won by another TKO
 
SONNY - Dug in for all 3 rounds against a very tall and strong import in the Novices championship. Couldnt of asked Sonny to do anymore, showed great determination pushing his opponent all the way.
