CARDIGAN ABC bought their long,but successful season to a close with a brace of fine victories in the Welsh Box Cup at Cardiff’s Sophia Gardens.

And it was Llanon teenager Llyr Jones – son of Alan Jones, the former British middleweight title challenger who fought under the monicker ‘The Fighting Farmer’ – who led the way with his maiden victory over Maxwell Robinson (Spartan ABC, Newport) in a 70 kg youth novice contest.

In what proved a nice clean contest, Jones showed that bit more variety and excelled technically on his way to a unanimous points decision.

Competing in the 57 kg youth category, Fishguard’s Mikey O Sullivan again showed his pedigree with a comprehensive victory over Drew Hammett (Pantside ABC).

The Cardigan boxer established the pattern of the fight with his very first jab and followed up with a superb straight right.

O’Sullivan did not rush, but continued to exhibit excellent punch selection to sap his opponent’s spirit.

A fierce left hook saw Hammett given a standing eight count and although the referee allowed the contest to continue, a couple more well-aimed shots forced him to step in and halt proceedings.

Cardigan ABC junior Dion Jones dropped a unanimous decision to Frazer Cayton (Colcot) in the 63 kg youth semi-finals in what proved a good learning fight.

Ifan Evans (70kg youth) also lost to Sean Bolger (The Yard, Letterston) on a unanimous decision.

“That's about it now for this season,” said Cardigan ABC head coach Guy Croft afterwards. “We've had 73 bouts and won 34 - not a fantastic record but the boys are out there boxing and gaining experience.”
