Troy Elworthy stood out for Barnstaple Amateur Boxing Club at their last home show of the season.

Elworthy was fighting Portland’s Archie Nash on Saturday in Barnstaple Pannier Market, an opponent he knows well.

The two clashed at the club’s last home show at Barnstaple Rugby Club, with Elworthy taking a unanimous victory – and the result was the same this time round.

The two started off at a fierce pace. Nash put out a lot of punches early on, but Elworthy countered well.

The Barnstaple fighter took control in the second round and landed some big shots in a much more tactical spell.

The pace wasn’t slow for long, with both putting all their energy in to the final round, but Elworthy’s efforts paid off.

Late cancellations meant the Barnstaple junior was the club’s highest-billed fighter.

Exeter Hardknocks’ Matt Corbett was the victor in the final match of the evening, beating Plympton’s Alan Vickers after Marcel Akakpo (Priorswood) had overcome Gage Conrad (Kings Boxing Academy).

Barnstaple’s Alfie Moulden kicked off the second half of fighting with an entertaining clash with Treadworth’s Hash Saleem.

Despite being on the wrong end of a split decision at the end, Moulden stayed on the front foot, putting in plenty of effort and working hard in front of a vocal home crowd.

Chris Boyd and Will Robson were in the ring before the break, but were on the wrong end of decisions against boxers from Romford ABC.

Youngsters Elliott Worsey and Charlie Ludwell took part in skills bouts early on.
