Trinity Boxing Club fighters have been in good form while representing the club around the country.

Super heavyweight Jack Harrison travelled to Liverpool to take on local favourite Chris Howell and, after an action-packed first round in which Harrison stood his ground and met fire with fire, he pulled out the decisive punches to end the fight - a big left hook and right upper cut forcing the referee to step in.

Earlier in the month, Harrison had taken unbeaten Polish boxer Przemyslaw Pozniak right to the wire in a Midland challenge belt bout in Redditch before missing out on a close points decision.

Jake Trueman won the April boxer of the month award after a big performance in Mansfield when he floored and stopped home town boxer Daniel Smith.

Trueman had moved down to welterweight and his commitment and preparation were perfect as he found the performance his effort deserved.

Meanwhile, two of the club’s senior stars were in action as they faced solid opposition in Redditch in Midland belt bouts .

Jamie Chatburn was commanding in his challenge against Billy Glover of the Royal Oak club but although the scores were very close, the award of the points victory to Glover seemed harsh, even the opposing corner believing their man had lost.

On the same bill, Trinity club captain Russ Henshaw faced double ABA champion Simon Barclay for a third time, this time for the Midland elite belt, and after an epic battle Barclay took yet another close decision.

Derbyshire schoolboy champion Loui Hemstock scored an impressive win in Alfreton when beating Midland champion Jake Hill, landing solid straight punches that gave him a convincing points victory.

After a disappointing disqualification in the national quarter-final of the ABA elite championship, flyweight Jamie Williams bounced back with a commanding display against Isaac Bloor of Stoke, giving him two standing counts in the first round from vicious body attacks .

Bantamweight Bloor came back well in the second round but Williams re-established his lead with solid shots in the last round, and although Bloor took the decision, Williams’ dominant performance was impressive.
