BILLERICAY Boys and Amateur Boxing Club’s young stars produced a night to remember, winning 12 out of 15 bouts at Hannakins Farm Sports Centre.

Four home boxers knocked out their opponents, while Wolfy Wood secured the Essex Junior ABA Novice Championship with a superb points victory.

Debutant James Burman, who has recently joined the club from Vange and Pitsea, was one of the knockout heroes, stopping Southend’s Billy Polkington within three rounds after a crushing blow left his opponent on the canvas.

Martin George was in spectacular form, knocking out Irish youngster Johnny Fitzgerald in the first round. George has yet to fight a bout that has lasted longer than three minutes.

The third knockout was provided by Karl Davis, whose heavy punches caused his fight to be stopped after his opponent suffered a nasty cut to the mouth.

Connor Ollifee took on an opponent from Chadwell, boxing cleverly off the back foot to take the bout on points, while Andrew George out-classed his opponent throughout his contest to easily win on points.

But the most impressive and explosive performance of the night was provided by Dan “Bomber” Berry, who knocked out St Gerard’s Gareth Ferguson with two thundering right hands after just 20 seconds.

Elsewhere, Harry Parsons also did well, winning on points, while Joe Cooke secured a unanimous decision against Southend’s Reece Richards, who had stepped in as a last-minute replacement after four potential opponents had dropped out in the week leading up to the Billericay show.

Billericay’s Matt Watson defeated Portsmouth’s Michael Isaacs, while Alex Suslov continued his fine run of results by out-pointing Milton Keynes’ Craig Woolward.

Last up was Billericay’s reigning Boxer of the Month Sam HIll.

The 18-year-old took on 25-year-old David Lawson from Portsmouth but age proved no barrier as Hill used his trademark left hooks to defeat his opponent on points.

Jack Lipton, Luke Fowler, who took on former England schools champion John Winson of Finchley, and Ricky Thorn all lost their bouts, but showed promise to suggest better results are just around the corner.

Billericay’s boxers will be involved in a host of shows over the coming weeks.

Tomorrow, they will spar in Sudbury before heading for Colchester for the Castle show on Friday evening.

Next Saturday, October 18, Billericay’s fighters will head for both Shoreham and for the Essex Senior Novices in Brentwood.

Tuesday, October 21 sees Billericay’s boxers head for the Gator Chingford show, while Saturday, October 25, is the date for the Tottenham event.

Finally, on Hallowe’en evening, October 31, the town’s boxers will be out to avoid a horrific evening at the Lion show in London.
