Bideford boxer wins in Plymouth

Joseph Bulmer

BIDEFORD boxer Jake Langdon gained victory at the Karma Club in Plymouth at the weekend when he stopped his opponent in the third round.

Langdon, 18, faced Gary Colwill of the Plymouth Mayflower Boxing Club.

Slightly taller than his opponent, he was able to dominate the first round exchanges with his straight punch combinations.

But he slackened in the second round and the Plymouth boxer came back into the contest, before being wobbled by a good two-punch combination late in the round.

Langdon upped the pace again in the final round and after trapping his opponent in the corner unleashed a combination of four punches before the referee stepped in.
