Barnstaple Amateur Boxing Club held their first home show of the season on Saturday night.

Topping the bill was Liam Laird, one of nine home boxers in action at Barnstaple Rugby Club.

Laird, in his 49th bout for the club, came up against Jonathon Kumuto from Finchley and District Amateur Boxing Club, where world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua was once a member.

In a non-stop light-middleweight match-up, Laird matched his strong opponent, putting in plenty of work rate over the three rounds, and picked off his opponent to earn a unanimous victory.

Ricardo Privitera made his debut for Barnstaple having boxed in his native Italy. Privitera was unlucky to lose by a split decision to Malmsbury’s Tom Millington.
