Littlehampton Amateur Boxing Club brought a bumper night of amateur boxing action, with 13 evenly-matched bouts, in the second instalment of the club’s annual boxing event last month.

Littlehampton head coach Steve Bailey was delighted with how the evening went and said: “We’re all really happy with how it went and grateful to everyone who helped make the show run so smoothly.

“It’s always good to get the lads on and watch all the hard work they put in at the gym pay off. All the fights were evenly matched, so it was fantastic to see some happy spectators also, which should set us in good stead for some more shows in the future.”

Paul Lee Cairnes won the opening bout against Mole Valley’s Harry Doherty, before Littlehampton’s Aiden Knight recorded an unanimous points win against Cooper Boys Jordan Sellamahuthu.

Unbeaten Joe Light handled the step up in class by out-pointing the more experienced Gosport boxer, Callum Pankhurst.

Littlehampton’s other unbeaten prospect, Isaiah Brown, got the majority decision win against Strood’s Chris Dunn.

John-Henry Brazil then lost a points decision to Aran Bullman, before Mark White recorded a stoppage win against City of Portsmouth’s Sam Boiling.

The final bout saw Littlehampton’s John Jackman get a points win against Brighton & Hove’s Josh Ellis in a high-paced encounter.
