Roche Boxing Club’s Billy Grogan made it three wins from three outings at the weekend.

The 12-year-old Blessed Trinity pupil fought on the show at Park Hall in Charnock Richard, and beat Larches and Savick boxer Patel on points.

Trainer Brian Roche said: “Young Billy’s a talented boxer and he was superb on the night.”

Meanwhile, the club held a show last month at Byerden House Social Club on Colne Road.

Grogan was in action again, beating Joshua Harker of Furness Catholic, one of many home wins.

George Drinkwater won the fight of the night, against a very formidable opponent in Billy Polkinghorn from Southend, who had won his last 12 fights and just returned from a successful spell in USA.

George has now won his last 16 fights and is now preparing himself for the tri nations in Cardiff in July.

Atif Mushtaq beat Mark Killeen (Kirkham), and there were further home wins for Anthony Tibbs against Paul License (Platinum), Aaron Hayden against George Wright (Southend), Uwais Majeed against George Davis (Southend), Adil Hussain against Ben Martin (Furness Catholic), and William Henson against Harry Bailey (Southend).

Mark Haworth went down to Southend’s Jack Warr, while Dean Thompson lost to B. McGregor of Blackpool.

Sean Hughes also lost to Dillon Mannion of Bridgewater Salford, while Nicky Perry was beaten by Sam White (Blackpool).

Finally, Mohammed Younis lost to Jake Leary of Rossendale.
