A total of 13 Bideford boxers took to the ring in front of a sold-out crowd, with five picking up wins.

Gabriel Silva topped the bill, taking on Intense’s Cameron Webb, but the Bideford boxer was on the wrong end of a unanimous decision.

Silva started the bought in clinical fashion, scoring consistently with his jab and not letting his opponent in.

Webb managed to find a way in over the next round, working the body before landing shots to Silva’s head and ended the round on the front foot.

Silva couldn’t quite get back on top in the final round, with his opponent going on to take the win.

Jamie Croarkin and Brad Richards both suffered defeats prior to the headline bout.

Croarkin came out firing against Exeter’s Mathew Winterbourne, with some crunching shots to the body. The Bideford boxer kept up a high work rate but Winterbourne came back with some excellent shots, and took the upper hand to come out with a unanimous win.

Richards was on the wrong end of a split decision against Intense’s Andrew Barkes. The Bideford boxer was forced to soak up some pressure in the opening round, and Barkes was able to find gaps in Richards’ guard as the fight developed.

The crowd was raucous for an all-Bideford bout which saw Dan Squires take a unanimous victory against Dutton Holmes.

After a back-and-forth opening round Squires took control over the course of the second, landing a big straight right that forced Holmes into a standing eight count. He kept pushing into the third, landing some clean shots to seal the decision win.

There were also wins for James Dearson, Jacob Stevenson, Kohan Kennedy and Dylan Wallis for Bideford.

Dearson was impressive in a unanimous win over The Factory’s Phil Kraus Mitchel. He started off on the front foot, landing some big shots in the opening round, and managed to hold his advantage as the fight slowed in the closing stages.

Stevenson’s quick feet and jab provided a platform for a split decision win over Devonport’s Finley Dan.

Kennedy produced a smart display in a split decision win over The Factory’s Harrison Melendez, finding some big shots in the first two rounds, including a fierce left hook at the end of the first. Melendez fought back as the bout neared its end, but Kennedy had enough for the win.

Wallis also impressed in his match against Portland’s Leon Warburton, with his hook looking dangerous over three rounds.

The night opened with bouts for Hayden Harris, Sam Wallen and Lewis Cornish, but each were on the wrong end of the judges decision.
