Boston ABC fighter Keir Sellars was again left frustrated by a judges’ decision.

Fighting in Newcastle last week, the teenager found himself on the wrong side of a decision against C. Robson, in a match he thought he’d won.

It was a bitter pill for the youngster to take, especially after losing his previous fight - to Stoke’s Joe Thompson - in the same manner.

“We thought we had won, they thought we won, and even the referee said he thought we won,” said coach Dave Goddard afterwards.

“Keir had the same thing happen in his last fight. It’s tough for him, but what can you do? It’s boxing, it happens”.

Sellars was making his presence known against the Forest Hall ABC fighter from the off, and until his opponents’ hand was raised, the Boston corner thought he had done enough for victory.

Making his debut for Boston was Peter James Cash.

Fighting on the same card after moving across from South Holland Boxing Academy, he faced O. Watson from Dunston ABC.

A mixture of travelling and nerves got the better of Cash, his opponent claiming the unanimous verdict.

Boston veteran Martin Kennedy competed on a Scunthorpe Imps ABC show, getting the nod ahead of home-club fighter R. Bruce.

In a thrilling encounter, Kennedy started strongly, with ferocious shots that would have put a lesser man away.

As the bout progressed, the Boston pugilist was having more success with his attacks, getting the unanimous verdict.
