TWO Boston Amateur Boxing Club fighters were left disappointed when they left Birmingham this weekend.
Fighters Nick Staples (pictured) and Thomas Pogson were both unhappy with the outcomes of their bouts.
Both lost on majority decisions, but both thought they should have won.
Staples’ opponent, Northampton’s David Adage, showed no intentions of getting involved in a blow-for-blow contest.
He chose to fight at a distance while Staples hunted down his prey.
But when he broke Adage’s resolve in the third, Staples was drained of energy and the shots he put through the Northampton man’s defence were absorbed.
Although Adage never troubled Staples, he showed good movement, enough to get the decision, much to the dismay of Staples.
Pogson put in a display of the noble art which his opponent Quar Oakman could not match.
The Birmingham lad was a formidable opponent and Pogson had to bet at his best to avert the blows thrown at him from all angles... but with no specific target in mind.
Oakman and his corner were surprised he was awarded the verdict, while the Boston team were left speechless.
