Trinity lads entertain
Trinity’s James Pyatt is declared the winner over Fahran Akhtar during the Sunday afternoon bill at The Festival Inn. Photo submitted.
TRINITY Boxing Club delivered a festive feast of boxing action to a sell-out crowd on their pre-Christmas show at The Festival Inn, Trowell.
The Sunday afternoon promotion proved popular with both boxers and fans who enjoyed some outstanding action in 13 well-matched contests.Club captain Luke Robinson gave the home fans plenty to cheer in his victory over David Jenvey of Droitwich, Worcester.
This cruiserweight encounter was a return bout from the last Festival show back in October, and Luke, 23, again came out on top but this time he made no mistakes as he boxed his way to a clear win over the tough south paw.
Jenvey, 22, came with revenge in mind and in good form having scored a fine knockout the previous week over common foe Elvis Dube of Derby.
Jenvey was determined, but Luke landed with clear scoring punches throughout the four rounds to take a clear decision.
Earlier, James Pyatt had given the club their first victory of the day after a close bout with Farhan Akhtar of Merlin Youth, Derby.
Akhtar thre plenty of punches but James used good movement to evade them as he stalked the tall Derby lad trying to land his own heavy punches.
James, 13, finished each round strongly and managed to connect with the elusive Akhtar enough to take a deserved but only split decision victory.
Jamie Williams’ performance proved to be a highlight of the day with many enthusing over his many talents as he earned a clear and hard-worked unanimous points decision over the very strong and determined Ikhtsham Lome of Burmantofft’s in Leeds.
Jamie, 16, was voted Trinity’s outstanding boxer last season and needed all of his skills to out-box and out-punch the tough Yorkshire lad.
Lome, nicknamed ‘Tyson’ by his clubmates, was short, squat and broad and swung his punches as he rushed in, but Jamie caught him cleanly as he advanced, bringing uppercuts up into Lome’s face and knocking back his head.
Jamie used the ring well, landing with his lightning fast hands and moving well to evade Lome’s lunghing advances.
