Bognor boys box clever

Bognor ABC’s Magic Mark Johnson put in a stunning display when unanimously outpointing Team Wiseman ABC’s Liam Wiseman.

Round one saw Wiseman trying to keep the bout at long-range but Johnson, bobbing and weaving, soon managed to take the fight where he wanted it on the inside.

Rounds two and three were Johnson’s and his busier style and body punching won him the decision. What made the win so special was that Wiseman was a national minors finalist last season.

Meanwhile, ten-year-old Bognor boxer Harry Reed had his first skills bout versus Tommy Maggs of Titchfield.

After a nervous start, Reed started finding his range with an accurate left jab. Maggs pressed forward, landing nice some hooks on the inside – but Reed kept his boxing together in a entertaining bout.

Both boys had their hands raised by the referee at the bell.
