BOXING: CREWE ABC packed a punch with three unanimous victories at Wednesday's show at Creation Nightclub in Hanley.
The Crewe club had four boxers on the card and all gave strong performances. Perhaps the best came from Geoff 'Bud' Wright who moved and jabbed his way to success against Ashton Albion ABC's Allan Delaney.
Trainer Joey Singleton said: 'I think that was one of his best bouts to date. The second round got a bit heated with Delaney trying to force Bud into some toe-to-toe exchanges, but he refused to get involved and counter-punched well.
Delaney then threw some big punches in desperation during the third round but, again, Bud stuck to what he knew and outboxed his opponent.'
Light middleweight Billy Boreham made his return from injury by earning another unanimous verdict from the judges for a deserved success against British Army boxer Lee Ross.
Crewe's hat-trick of victories was completed by schoolboy Josh Flood, who was making his debut at a public show.
He defeated Atherstone ABC's Henry Jones with neat footwork and superior boxing skills to mark an excellent start to his Crewe career.
It may have been a 100% return for Crewe but for a public warning given to Ian Clyde in his contest with Phoenix ABC fighter Mark Blackburn. In an effort to nullify Blackburn's strong inside work, Clyde held on to his opponent in the second round.
Despite a battling third round, Clyde missed out as Blackburn was awarded a majority decision.
