TWO Chadwell St Mary boxers represented Essex in the Essex versus Kent county match held at the Hutton Centre Brentwood on Saturday 29th January. Kieran Redding 18yrs 61kg and, Levi Lee 12yrs 44kg. Also boxing on the night in a supporting bout was Chadwell boxer Kieran Wright 12yrs 30kg.
First to box was Kieran Wright who came against Connor O’Riley from Barking A.B.C. Youngster Wright gave a spirited and gutsy performance but lost the bout on a points decision.
Next up was Levi Lee who boxed against Devon Scott-Waller from the Rumbles Academy in Sittingbourne.
In the first round Lee attempted to prize open the tight defence of the taller Kent boy. Lee was picking his shots nicely against Scott-Waller. The first round was boxed on even terms with Lee appearing to be slightly ahead by landing several clear point scoring shots. In the second round they continued the fast action packed pace with the bout remaining level. Lee stepped up the pace in the third round and once again appeared to be landing the cleaner shots. However the Kent judges turned in a majority decision in the Kent boxers favour.
Kieran Redding also had a fast paced bout with Jack Raines from The Rumbles Academy in Sittingbourne.
