Bridlington ABC are hosting their final show of the season this Friday at Hornsea Floral Hall. Doors open at 7.15pm and tickets are priced at £10 for adults and £5 for children and can be bought on the door.

Head coach Damien Grant said: “This show will feature a lot of our younger prospects, all of whom are keen to show everyone how far they have developed this season.”

Hoping to be in action are Tom Boyes, Adam Church, James Precious, Billy Gibson, Ben Malone, Leah Smith, Tom Hebden, Roan Stanley, Aaron Boyes, Paul Dean and Darren Boyes.

Meanwhile, last Sunday two Bridlington boxers competed in the Junior ABA national Quarter finals.

Aaron Boyes was boxing Patrick McCann of the Kettering School of Boxing.

Boyes was the more experienced of the two fighters but what McCann lacked in experience he made up for it guts, and he kept coming at the Bridlington boxer who didn’t look as sharp as he is used to being.

The two boxers traded some good shots throughout the contest but it was the Midlands-based boxer who got the nod from the judges.

Also in action was last season’s English champion Zac Stabler. He was boxing Zohaib Hanif of the Pleck ABC in Walsall.

Stabler looked a little ring rusty early on in the contest but after the first round was out the way, he soon got into his stride and Hanif began to struggle with Stabler’s strength and work rate.

Hanif was forced to hold on to Stabler in order to keep him from throwing and was given two warnings by the referee. Throughout the last round Stabler’s assault continued and at the close of the bout it was a rather comfortable decision from the judges.

Stabler will compete this Sunday in Birmingham for a place in the national final.
