March ABC’s Mark Smith reached the national semi-finals of Minors England Boxing championships next weekend after victory by unanimous decision in the quarter-finals at Debenham, Suffolk.

Smith boxed against Denny Smith from Sporting Ring ABC from Surrey in a 31kg contest. In the first round Mark showed better skills. In the second his opponent rushed to get the match back but Mark managed to avoid many shots. Mark needed the third round to make sure of his progress, showing incredible ring craft for an 11 year-old.

In Peterborough Police ABC’s show, Shaun Simpson boxed for the fourth time. He beat Cambridge Police ABC’s, Rich Ellis.
