Two members of Grantham ABC were in action at Leicester last Thursday night.

Light-welterweight Terry Bennett gave a good account of himself to win on a unanimous points decision against N. Lliyas of Hockwell Ring ABC.

Grantham coach Dean Fardell said: “He had three good rounds. It got a bit scruffy but he toughed it out and generally dominated.”

Fighting at the same weight, Jordan Davies made his debut against Tom Page (Leicester Fountain ABC).

Jordan lost on points but Dean was happy with his man: “It was a typical first fight.

“He kept walking on to jabs but in the second round he started to go forward and get under the jab. He did well and the best is yet to come.”
