The club had eight competitors in the ring for bouts at the show at Petroc after a few of the planned bouts fell through, but spectators were not left disappointed at the business end of the bill.

Alex Hillier stormed to a unanimous victory over Knowle ABC’s Declan Bartley in the penultimate fight of the night – a performance that would see him win the Keira Ball Trophy for the best Barum boxer.

Hillier got on the front foot from the off, backing Bartley up with the jab and leaving his opponent with a bloody nose by the end of the first round.

The Barum boxer kept getting through Bartley’s guard, and the fight was paused three times so the Knowle boxer could get cleaned up. Hillier didn’t let up though, finishing strongly in the third to seal the win.

Following the bout was Liam Green, who took on Knowle’s Keith Hill in the headline bout.

The Barum boxer gave up a few inches in range, but got inside well and landed some good shots underneath. A cut above Hill’s left eye in the second round led to a stoppage, with Green performing well either side of it.

A flurry of punches saw Green give Hill a standing eight count in the final round as he went on to take a unanimous win.

There was also a win for Aiden Friendship, who took a split decision victory in an action-packed bout against Aldercar and Langley Mill’s Ethan Morledge.

Friendship flew out of the traps in the first round, trapping Morledge on the ropes and unleashing combinations to the body, and he finished the round strongly with a sharp straight shot.

Another flurry in the second round saw Morledge given a standing eight count, but the visiting boxer battled back in the final round to narrow the decision.

Kai Avery and Sam Watts were on the wrong end of unanimous decisions. Avery took on Odyssey Boxing Club’s Jordan Pannone, where despite a measured approach, the Barum boxer was picked off by Pannone’s counter punching.

Watts came up against Mitchell Williamson of Whitchurch Boxing Academy, who scored well with his jab throughout.

Junior boxers Hickson Bishop and Jackson Passmore were both on the wrong end of judges decisions against Tiverton boxers earlier in the evening.

Liam Davis showed impressive footwork as he opened up the show in a skills bout against Torbay’s Blake Trott.
