Victories for Jake Finch and Lewis Williams at Clearys' home show

LEWIS Williams and Jake Finch stole the show with impressive wins over more experienced opponents at the latest Clearys’ Boxing Show.

A full house at the new Trident Centre witnessed Williams defeat Dean Baxter in what proved to be a one-sided belt.

Baxter seemed to take the punishment laid on by the young Leaminton boxer and got up after two standing counts but in the end it was Williams’ aggressive manner that helped him win the fight.

Finch marked his return from injury with a victory over Ryan Ducker. Despite being a little rusty after four months out with a broken thumb, Finch took the fight in his stride and proved too much for for Chatteris ABC boxer.

There were mixed results for the rest of Clearys’ boxers with Ricky Atwel losing by a very close decision, while Michael Jephcot also made his return after two years out of the ring, while there were also skill bouts for Jordan Kendell, Jeevan Hayer and Aman Kumar.

Elsewhere in the England Junior Championships, Josh Finch, brother of Jake, tasted a defeat in the pre-quarter-finals in Newdigate on Sunday.

Coach Cleary said: “We believed he’d got it, but with a performance like that it won’t be long before he will be in the England set up. Now only on ten bouts he can give the development a go in August.”

Danny Quatermaine was expected to fight on the show but his opponent pull out at the last minute. Quatermaine will now turn his attentions towards the an England Boxing Central area belt this Friday.
