TWO DROITWICH Amateur Boxing Academy fighters made encouraging starts to the season with victories in a Central England Show at Alcester on Saturday.

Joe Doyle scored a unanimous points victory against his toughest opponent to date, Charlie Hickford, from Repton Boxing Club, while George Francis defeated Kevin Youton.

In the thrilling elite level contest, Doyle showed no rustiness in his first fight of the season as he took the opening round thanks to his solid jabs and relentless body shots.

Last year’s national champion, Hickford, bounced back in the second to set up a pulsating final round as both boxers went toe-to-toe for the win before Doyle came out on top for his offensive domination.

In his novice bout, Francis made it two wins out of two to this campaign after winning his latest contest against Youton from Eastwood BC.

The Spa youngster combined excellent movement and solid defence in the opening exchanges before going on to dominate the clash as he landed a plethora of clean shots on his opponent.
