One of our talented Year 8 students Sam Casson, won his latest boxing match last month against Declan Dee from Manchester’s Spartan gym at a show in Maryport.
Sam, who boxes for Whitehaven and District Amateur Boxing Club, controlled the action and the centre of the ring in the first session, working well on the inside. He caught the eye of the judges with his work ethic, accuracy an!d better range of shots.
In the second session, Sam landed with cleaner shots and outworked his opponent on the inside and by the final session Sam made it his sixth win out of six bouts.
Sam’s coach, Barry Acton, said the match showed ‘what a talent Sam is’ and was ‘very pleased with Sam’s victory.’
Sam and other members of the club will next compete at Whitehaven Golf Club on 28th January 2017 at the club’s annual show. Good luck Sam!
