SIBLINGS Joe and Phoebe Davies were among the 12 boxers from Colchester Amateur Boxing Club who wore the club colours and stepped between the ropes to represent the club on their biannual open show.

The show took place at St Benedict’s Catholic College in Colchester and proved to be one of the most successful in the club's history.

In the first five contests of the afternoon Aaron Monks, Charlie Lock, Joe Mazzerole, Stanley Walton and Alfie Zyms all took part in no-decision skills contests.

Each boxer gave a very good account of themselves demonstrating the quality of coaching that takes place in the Colchester club.

In the first competitive bout,, Joe Davies continued his winning streak with a unanimous points win against a strong and well-schooled opponent in Kristian Webster from the Norwich Lads ABC.

Blake Marshall turned in a career best performance against Jimmy Elwood from Progress Boxing Club also in Norwich, closing the first half of the show and securing the second unanimous win of the afternoon for Colchester.

Charlie Jones conceded height, age and weight against Tyler Ball of Holland Shore ABC.

In the face of adversity, Jones Battled hard in a toe-to-toe war, but in the end, the natural size of Ball proved a little too much and a split decision win was awarded against the Colchester puncher.

Following a very close encounter just a week ago, Morgan Bloomfield faced a rematch against Kie Bryan of Sudbury ABC. Bloomfield pressed hard using his natural strength but Bryan’s sharp punching from the back-foot seen him scoop a split points win.

Making her return to the ring after two years away from competitive boxing, former national champion Phoebe Davies faced Phoebe Griffiths-Johnson from Fishersgate ABC.

Davies proved she was more than ready to return to the ring with an impressive display of controlled aggression which not only seen her awarded the unanimous win over Griffiths-Johnson but also awarded the trophy for best home boxer as voted by the England Boxing officials.

Dan Richardson extended his unbeaten run with a convincing display of counter-punching.

Despite facing an opponent with a height and reach advantage in Warriors ABC Ethan King, Richardson landed the jab and overhand right consistently from his back-foot stance to secure another unanimous win for Colchester.

Closing the show with another career best performance, club captain Ben Lee faced Joe Fields of Norwich City ABC.

Fields proved elusive and difficult to hit but Lee remained composed and pressed forwards landing the more eye-catching punches of the contest, securing another unanimous win and concluding a successful afternoon for Colchester ABC.

Having just won a contest representing Essex, James McLaren was disappointed to not box on the show when his opponent pulled out due to injury on the day.

However, McLaren is due to be back in action on Saturday in Oxfordshire and Charlie Lock, Morgan Bloomfield and Ben Lee will return to the ring on Friday night in Billericay.
