WORCESTER City ABC star Trent Smith has won the Midlands schoolboy class three under 52kg title.

Boxing against Ben Johnson of Bilborough ABC he struggled early on.

But a steady secondsaw Smith edge in front with fast combination punches. Johnson was backed up several times, unable to cope with the speed of the Worcester boy’s punching.

Smith turned up the pace in the third and Johnson had no answer to the pressure and was given a standing count.

A unanimous points win sets Smith up to face the North West champion James Devine of Manx ABC on Sunday.
