Freddies star on Ockley ABC show

A packed card saw Ockley ABC duo Freddy Gregson and Freddy Chester both win on their debuts.


Chester claimed a unanimous decision over the game Ben Banners (Team Wiseman) as Ockley hosted their third open show.


Gregson had an exciting bout against Romano Escritt (St Peter’s), turning up the pressure in the second after an even first round before winning by a third-round stoppage.


Victory gained Gregson a standing ovation from the home crowd on the show at the Genesis Church, Bognor.


Gregson’s win was one of only two bouts not to go the distance on a 15-fight card which kicked off with Chichester’s David Smith recording a unanimous points victory over Hastings boxer Hayden Young.


Ockley’s Luca Franzini took part in his first skills bout against Littlehampton’s Charlie Steel as the two 11-year-old debutants entertained an appreciative crowd.


Home boxer Kye Lake, also on debut, had a junior contest against south London boxer Tiernan Dunne (St Peter’s) which turned into a real barnstormer.


The more experienced Dunne managed to win on points, helped by a dramatic knockdown within the last ten seconds of the bout.


Lake showed great resilience to get up and beat the count to finish a contest which will stand both boys in good stead for the future.


Ockley’s Samir Doghlkiev had a great contest against St Gerards’ Luke Bowe.


Both boys fought with heart and skills on their debuts and did both clubs proud with Bowe winning by a split decision.


Last on for Ockley was Percival Tussamba, who was in a closely fought contest which his team thought he had won but went the way of Ishan from Southampton.


The next show will be early in the new year as the club continues to develop a fantastic group of dedicated young lads.
