Young Trinity ABC boxer Jordan Lewis produced the best performance of his short career in Yorkshire last week to continue the good form of the club’s boxers in the new year.

Lewis, 13, faced David Simpson of the promoting S.Y.D. Club in Wakefield at the packed Kellingley Social Club and used intelligent counter-punches to take a clear points decision.

Simpson was the Yorkshire schoolboy champion and tried to impose himself with rugged attacks from the first bell but he was met with solid counter punches that saw the Trinity lad build up an impressive lead.

After two rounds, Lewis was well in command of the contest and applied pressure with solid combinations in the final round to seal a very impressive victory.

Trinity coach Scott Rafferty said: “Jordan boxed very well. He is learning and making good progress and has listened to good advice in the gym, and tonight he put that into action and came away with a very impressive victory over the Yorkshire champion.

“With this kind of application he could make great progress.”

Trinity boxers will be in action in front of their own fans again at the Festival Inn, Trowel on March 25.

A full programme of Trinity fighters will be in action in what promises to be an all action event.

Newly-crowned national champion Russ Henshaw will take on Andy Buckley of Sheffield and Midland Counties super heavyweight champion Jake Harrison is scheduled to meet another Yorkshire man in national semi-finalist Connor West of Sheffield City.

Tickets for this event are now on sale and are available from Scott Rafferty on 079 5656 55 82.

They are priced at £15 for adults, £5 for under-16s.
