Youngsters show the boxing potential in Bideford

North Devon Gazette

Harley Pugh boxed in Saltash against Reggie Sutton from Devonport. Sutton came out aggressively and pushed Pugh back to the ropes. Â

In the second round, Pugh stood his ground and enjoyed lots of success with combinations, as he slowed Sutton down. In the last, both lads gave everything, trading off with fast punches, it was Sutton who pulled away at the bell to gain the unanimous points win but a great effort from the young Bideford boxer.Â

Leo Mcmenamin made his ring debut on the same show with a skills bout against Paddy Rooney from St Austell. It was a controlled performance from Mcmenamin, boxing and moving, showing plenty of potential for the future. Â

Both boxers will be in action at Bideford Boxing Club’s next show on March 19, as they return to Bideford Pannier Market for the first time in 15years. For tickets priced £10, phone Rich 07949 770616 or Dick 07841 846552.Â
