There were six Barnstaple boxers in action at Barnstaple Rugby Club across 12 bouts.

Topping the bill was Jed Davies, who earned a majority decision win over Malmesbury ABC’s Lewis Roberts.

Davies held the middle of the ring in the opening round, finishing it with an excellent three-punch combination. He built on that in the second round, moving well and landing some clean hits, with a hook and straight shot putting him in control.

Roberts came back in the final round as he went after the contest, but Davies had enough to take the win.

Billy Sheppard was also a majority winner before the final bout, beating Brandon Robson of Carl’s Boxing Stable.

Sheppard caught a straight shot through his guard early on, but was able to get back on the front foot and end the round well.

He came out firing in the second, dodging a shot from Robson and putting in a barrage of punches.

Sheppard began to tire in the third round, with Robson able to find some clean punches, but not enough to swing the bout back in his favour.
