HEREFORD Boxing Academy took victories for both of their fighters at Wodensborough ABC Open Show.

Senior boxer Tom Beech and Midland Counties Champion youth boxer David Smith were both in action and took impressive away wins.

Smith took on Jaden Cayenne (Acocks Green ABC) in a rematch after the Hereford boxer won the first fight on home soil. Cayenne looked a lot fitter than the last time they both fought, but Smith was equal to the task taking control from the first round.

The second round Smith’s game plan was to up the tempo and he floored Cayenne with a rear hand punch.

In the third round Smith carried out his execution to force his rival onto his back foot with a flurry of combination punches until the final bell rang, winning by unanimous decision to Smith.

Meanwhile, Beech matched with home fighter Ash Ward (Wodensborough ABC).

Beech had been working on his core fitness and recovery times in preparation for the bout which showed.

Beech’s game plan was to keep continuous pressure on his opponent.

As the bell went in the first round Beech didn’t hesitate in taking full control of the bout.

He closed down Ward and gave him no let up or room to box back.

Beech ducked under Ward's desperate shots and continued to eliminate body shots through out all three rounds.

The Hereford coaches were amazed to see the work rate Beech put into the fight and he was rewarded with a unanimous win decision from all the officials.

Hereford Boxing Academy will be preparing all their boxing squad ready for their Charity Dinner Boxing Show that is on Saturday, November 21, at the Three Counties Hotel in Hereford.

The chosen charity for the evening will be Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) after Hereford’s sad loss of a Kieran Joyce.
