Sandygate Amateur Boxing Club recently made the trip to Bacup for Rossendale ABC’s first-ever show.

First up was James “Elvis” Danson (13), who dominated a non-decision bout of skill against A.Khan (Middleton Select ABC), who was all shook-up in the last when a large looping left landed flush.

North West Champion “Smokin’” Joe Crawford (12) took the verdict against J.Peat (West Hull ABC). The classy Crawford caught Peat with ease in the first, and the second and third saw the St.Christopher’s Year 8 pupil counter every attack, punishing every error.

Sandygate senior Brandon “Hit-Man” Hartley (18, pictured) took on C.Rawson (Pool Of Life ABC) and dominated from the first bell for another unanimous win.

And Accrington’s Lee O’Hara (24) narrowly lost out to J.Mitchell (Nortside ABC) on his return to the ring.
