Nina Bradley was named as the Boxer of the Night as Boston ABC hosted their home show at haven High on Saturday.

She was in top form when she faced Stevi Levy from the newly-formed, Hero’s Gym, Kings Lynn.

There was only going to be one winner in this contest, Levy receiving a standing count in the second, only to succumb to the awesome power of Bradley in the third as the referee called a halt to the contest.

Bradley’s efforts also saw her selected to box for the East Midlands Team against the Army on May 10th in Nottingham.

Former junior schoolboy ABA finalist Tommy Upsall is enjoying his return to boxing,but the Bostonian was beaten by D. Edwards from Melton Mowbray ABC, who was in fine form.

Local favourite Ronnie Goddard faced opponent Williams, from Braunstone Golden Gloves, and he was not making it easy for Goddard as his low blows were being ignored by the referee, while Goddard was deducted a point for a similar infringement.

With little to separate the two, Goddard claimed the split decision.

Debutant Andy Waters faced B. Applebaum from Tamar ABC in a heavyweight contest.

The opening round, saw honours even before Waters stepped up his attack, winning withy a third-round technical knockout.

Old timer Dave Bagley turned things around against Tamar ABC’s R. Chard, stopping his rival in round three.

Luidas Martinkenas started slowly and cautiously as he faced J. Stankevicius from Danum ABC.

A one-sided affair saw Martinkenas suffering with a severe nosebleed and a slight cut on the left eye before Stankevicius was given a majority decision.

Josh Branson didn’t get the decision when he faced Boston-based Terry Bennet, who was representing Grantham ABC.

Junior Callum Parker began the evening’s proceedings and marked his home debut against Blake Dobbin, the Tom Hill ABC fighter given a unanimous decision.

Angelica Finch, marked her arrival in style as opponent A. Hellewell of Ernie Oxers S.O.B. withdrew from the contest in less than 40 seconds, giving Finch victory via a technical knockout.

Keir Sellars found S. Jones from March ABC too hot to handle and his opponent was given the unanimous decision.

Boston’s Charlene Middlebrook and N. Hutchinson, from Derby City ABC, gave their all and by round three both boxers were running on empty, Hutchinson handed the unanimous decision.
