The Guernsey Dinner Boxing Club had the largest number of guests for many a year and they were treated to an evening of good food and fantastic boxing.

We were due to have nine bouts but had seven bouts on the night, we were down two bouts due to a motorway accident in the UK meaning that two boxers missed their flights, this in turn meant both Finn Walsh and Arnie Watson didn’t box.

Nolan Buddery and Frankie Veron were involved in a competitive skills contest which was a great learning experience for them both.

Liam Duff won against Charlie Smith by stoppage in round two. 

Round one was very competitive, and in round two Liam upped the tempo, forcing a count of eight.  Shortly after the ref stopped the contest due to an injury to his opponent.

Tyler Quintel won against Conor Morgan by split decision. 

The bout was an absolute war, and both boxers went at it hard for the three rounds, the larger that average crowd were surprised that they were both standing at the final bell.

This was a fantastic tough hard-fought bout which deservedly earnt “Bout of the Night”. 

Emile Prevel against Conner Whalley won by unanimous. 

Conner was a smart counter puncher, but Emile used his height advantage well to dictate the range and take the win on all 3 judges cards.

Cameron Hards was the winner against a tough opponent in Robert Lorimer, by a split decision. 

This was another brutal contest with both boxers landing heavy blows. Cameron’s higher work rate in round 3 probably swayed the decision in his favour.

Ruslan Gogercacks beat Ryan Nelson by a unanimous decision.

Rulsan gave away quite a big height advantage but did well moving his head to get into range, land punches and move off. Another very competitive contest.

Tommy Teers won by split decision. 

Tommy’s opponent Amaam Ghulam was last year’s ABA semi-finalist, so its very possible they could meet again. 

This was a stand-offish affair, with both lads trying to win on counter punches. 

This was a very technical bout with the judges scores preferring Tommy’s marginally higher work rate. A fight that really could have gone either way.

The next Dinner Boxing Show is on March 15th where we are hoping to have more of the same, if you can make it I’m sure you will not be disappointed.
