Trinity ABC’s Macauley Cartwright scored an impressive win in Walsall last Thursday when unanimously outpointing Midland champion Liam Gould of Birmingham club, William Perry.
After a fairly even first round in the banqueting suite at the Bescot Stadium, home of Walsall FC, the Trinity south paw upped the pace and the power and gradually took control of a fight between two talented young boxers.
Several body punches and solid left hands to the head midway through the round put 16-year-old Cartwright in command and put him in front in a hard-fought contest.
Gould came out determined for the last round but the young Trinity star met him with solid counter punches and continued to score with solid punches to seal a fine win and another excellent year for his club.
Meanwhile, Trinity’s Jordan Lewis scored a big win in Stoke-on-Trent a few days before Cartwright’s success when he upset local favourite Shaun Eggington on his home show at the Jubilee Club, promoted by the Meir Boxing Club.
Jordan, stood his ground against the taller lad and met him with strong, hurtful punches that shocked the local boxer.
Eggington was highly rated but had not been tested by the power that the Trinity star hit him with and he soon went into survival mode.
Lewis, in his first bout of the season, was determined and never let the pressure cease as he took a clear and impressive victory.
On the same night in Walsall, Trinity’s Haydon Clarke and Kieran Yourston both missed on close points decisions against local fighters Jack Wood and Mohammed Ali respectively.
