Frost continues winning ways
10:24am Friday 18th October 2013 in Sport
HARWICH Amateur Boxing Club’s hectic start to the season continued with two more shows.
Welterweight senior Ryan Frost secured his second win in as many weeks, competing at South Rainham.
He enjoyed a unanimous points victory against Ricky Attreed, from hosts Hornchurch.
Southpaw Frost boxed intelligently in the opening two rounds, dictating the pace and picking up points with his sharp counter-punches.
Attreed upped his game in the third, pushing his opponent back – much to the delight of the partisan home crowd.
However, the Harwich boxer’s defence was up to the mark.
The final session was fought at a hectic rate, but Frost closed the bout with a number of accurate shots to secure a solid and unanimous points win.
Jack Farrow made his full competitive debut against Mayland’s Albert Brooks – and was not in a mood to hang round.
The 11-year-old showed technique well beyond his years as he pegged Brooks back, taking a standing eight count towards the end of the first session.
Farrow continued to pressure in the second – enough to force another eight count – and the referee’s intervention forced a stoppage, with victory going to the Harwich boxer.
Schoolboy Callum Roberto Sparkes rediscovered his form and gave a great account of himself before dropping the closest of majority points decisions to James Josling, of Chadwell St Mary.
The previous night at Harlow, Tommie Smith contested an Anglia NABC semi-final, going out on points to eventual champion Stephen Green, from Centurions ABC.
However, the in-form Pat Allen-Cripps did pick up an Anglian title.
He took the class A, under 66kg baubell, with no opponent available.
Allen Cripps now takes on the winner of the Surrey, Sussex and Kent round.
