Launceston Boxing

Congratulations to Launceston Amateur Boxing Club on putting on another superb show, this time at the White Hart in the centre of town. The place was packed to the rafters and the atmosphere was incredible - especially for the last two fights of the evening featuring Tom Ware and Jordan Platt, both home club boxers of great potential.

I was surprised but very happy to be given the chance to pick the bout of the night and gave it to the match between Tom Ware and John Welshman of the Pilgrims Club in Plymouth.

But there were some great fights from the off. Sam Smith comprehensively beat Combe Martin's Alex Dovell and Dan Banton was non-stop action to outpoint Connor Farrell who was one of four fighters to come from Eltham in SE London.

Launceston ABC is a great venture run by coach Des Charnock and his team and they know how to put on a show.
