CHESTER Boxers ended the year on a high by sweeping the board at the ‘Return of the Gladiators’ bill on Sunday.
All four fighters from the Lightfoot Street gym in Hoole put on a real show in front of a packed audience of more than 500 fans at Chester Racecourse.
The hotly-tipped quartet of Joe Lovell, Omar Gumati, Chris Goodwin and Paul Economides all came away with important points victories.
Welsh prospect Lovell, 19, beat Carl Allen to secure a win in his first ever professional bout.
Gumati, of Blacon, and Great Barrow’s Goodwin then defeated Rocky Chakir and Youssef Al Hamid respectively before Connah’s Quay ace Economides put paid to Shaun Doherty.
Chester Boxers coach Steve Goodwin, who had predicted four wins prior to the event, was happy to see the quartet all further their growing reputations by successfully completing four, three-minute rounds in front of an excited home crowd.
Steve said: “It was a really good show with some great fights. We were very pleased with some of the skills on display in the ring.
“Joe was brilliant on his debut and Chris boxed well against a tricky opponent.
“Omar won a tough fight and Paul boxed very well also and could now be ready for title fight in the new year.”
He added: “We’d like to thank everyone who turned up for showing their support. I’ve given the lads all the week off now to put some weight back on.
“Then we’ll all be back in the gym everyday over Christmas, in preparation for some big fights and some potential title fights.”
Deesider Tom Doran also fought on Sunday’s card, defeating Dee Mitchell on points.
