DANNY Quatermaine demonstrated why he is fast becoming one of the brightest young talents in amateur boxing after defeating highly rated James Beech.
Beech, from Pleck ABC, has a reputation of being one of the top youth boxers in the country having recorded victories over previous national champions and European Gold medalists.
But Quatermaine made easy work of his opponent last Friday evening and successfully defended his England lightweight belt against the number one challenger.
The Leamington boxer really put Beech to the sword and a series of heavy jabs and body shots had his opponent struggling.
A mix of body and head shots proved to much for Beech and Quatermaine was awarded the win.
“Danny is only in his third season and the speed he’s gone from novices to elite in his first season has always been very hard.” said trainer Edwin Cleary.
“He hasn’t had the chance to develop his skills but now seems to be finding his feet.
“All this with a pulled muscle in his back from round one. Danny turns 18 in June and turns senior and will have a chance to box men with the same amount of bouts.
“I believe this is when Danny’s boxing skills will start to show.”
Quatermaine will be in action again at a heavyweight show penciled in for May 23 where four titles will be on the line, including light heabyweight Lewis Williams.
