Boston Amateur Boxing Club fighters made the 700-mile round trip to fight on a Tamar ABC show in Cornwall on Saturday.

Super heavyweight Carl Creasey made his debut in style, winning by TKO In the third round as his superior strength showed.

Dennis Watson made a return to senior boxing after seven years of retirement.

The former club captain’s return saw him boxing a younger opponent in a contest of three three-minute rounds, also his first time without a headguard.

Despite his superior fitness, Watson lost on a split decision in a contest which could have gone either way.

Andy Waters was finding the pace tough going after a busy fight schedule in recent weeks.

Waters displayed good offensive attacks but he ran out of steam and was beaten on a points decision.

Angelica Finch was unlucky to lose her contest as she and her opponent both stood their ground in the heavy exchanges, but she still left with the Fight of the Night Trophy.

Coby Brown made his debut in the ring with an impressive display in his skills bout, showing he could be one to watch in the future.

Boston’s Eagle pub sponsored the club for the night, allowing them to make the journey.

The previous evening, two Boston ABC fighters were in action on a card in Derby.

Blake Emmerson didn’t get the decision against an opponent with superior reach while Boston favourite Dave Bagley put on a great display in a closely-run affair, losing out on points.
