WORCESTER City Amateur Boxing Club took a team of four competitors to a public show at Watson Hall, Tewkesbury.

Schoolboy Trent Smith gave the club a great start by inflicting the first defeat on southpaw Callum Blockley, of Earl Shilton.

It was easy to see why Blockley was undefeated in 10 contests to begin with.

Great movement and accurate sharp punching was enough for him to claim the first round.

Once Smith found his range and worked out the southpaw style, he turned the bout in his favour with sheer determination.

Blockley got caught with well-timed rights as Smith continued to pile on the pressure.

His opponent struggled with the all-action approach and was given two public warnings for holding before Smith picked up the win on points.

Middleweight Amar Hussian returned to the red and black colours of Worcester after boxing in Taunton.

Hussian put on a stylish display by outpointing Adam Craigmile, of Thame and Aylesbury ABC.

In total control throughout, he used his left jab to conduct proceedings.

A mature and balanced performance from Hussian was rewarded with a unanimous victory. The hard-punching bantamweight Annis Shabir spent three rounds battling with Omar Junmale, of Barton Hill, in an entertaining contest.

The textbook went out of the window with Shabir trying to unload heavy punches.

Toe-to-toe battling and untidy work at times saw the bout finish with Shabir the victor on points.

Bantamweight Jon Roberts was involved in a tremendous encounter with Chris Adaway, of Mayflower ABC.

Plymouth’s Adaway proved difficult to nail down as Roberts applied himself in his usual aggressive manner.

The hard-punching Roberts was to contest a long four rounds.

Superb counter-punching from Adaway, along with the occasional fast combinations, saw him through to a unanimous points victory.
