Bridlington ABC boxer Danny Pallant picked up his first win, after a stunning third-round technical knockout.

After narrowly losing out in his debut bout at the Spa earlier this month, the heavyweight newcomer travelled to Whitby, to take on Dan Garbutt.

The Bridlington boxer always appeared in control of the contest. During the second round he landed a right hook that sent Garbutt to the canvas and forced a mandatory eight count and after a barrage of punches in the third, the referee consulted with the ringside doctor before stopping the contest in favour of Pallant.

Team-mate James Precious also stopped his opponent in the final round, when he took on Lewis Greenoff in Barnsley. After two very close rounds, Precious picked up the pace in the third and forced two eight counts before the referee stopped the contest in the dying seconds of the bout.

Also boxing in Barnsley was Jack Marshall, who was returning for his first bout in some time, he shook off the ring rust but was unable to overcome his South Yorkshire opponent as he dropped a points decision to Patrick O’ Doherty.

On a busy weekend for the club, three Bridlington boxers also took to the ring in Hull, with Arlen Smith, Emily Asquith and Ted Wray all in action. Smith and Wray both acquitted themselves well in skills contests and Asquith lost out on a close split decision when she gave away a lot of experience to Rigna-Rose Page from Sunderland.

Three boxers from the Bridlington club will look to enter the Schools Championships this coming Sunday. Cameron Connelly, Marshall and Asquith will all travel to Sheffield to weigh in and register for the competition.
