Dearson puts on a great show at short notice

North Devon Gazette

Bideford boxer James Dearson stepped in at just a day’s notice to box as the main event in Gloucester against undefeated David Ayguno. Â

Both fighters engaged in the middle of the ring and stayed there from start to finish, trading off with flurries of punches in an absorbing contest. Â

In the 2nd round, Dearson targeted the body well, making Ayguno wince on several occasions, but he showed his toughness to withstand the barrage. The crowd was on their feet in the last as Dearson and Ayguno let the big shots go on the inside, it was hard to split the boxers at the final bell. Â

Ayguno picked up the win, but Dearson was awarded for his efforts with the bout of the night trophy. Â

Bideford ABC’s next show at the Pannier Market on March 19th is sold out and there will be no tickets available on the door.Â
