Next up was Peter Varey. He had his first skills bout, also against a good lad from Trumpington. We conceded a fair bit of weight to the taller opponent, but this didn’t deter Peter in anyway, as he matched the lad shot for shot, and thoroughly enjoyed enjoyed himself.

Last on was George Rushton. He had a good lad from Maldon. Both boxers had a similar style, with George using the ring to his advantage, catching the opponent with the better shots, to take the unanimous points win. Well done to the 3 boxers and many thanks to the friends & family who made the trip to show their support.

Well done Louie, the first competitive bout is on the horizon.

National Junior Cadet
2nd April 2017

Chalvedon ABC took Sonny all the way to Grantham for the rearranged Semi Final, after the Basildon event was cancelled.

He boxed the number one lad in the country from Hooks Boxing Club. Sonny boxed really well, landing some cracking shots on his opponent, controlling the bout for two rounds. The last round was much closer, and although we thought he had done enough to take the win, it wasn’t to be this time. We couldn’t argue the split decision, as it was genuinely that close of a bout.

Sonny remains number 3 in the country. A great achievement.

Special thanks Leah, Bobby and Billy Tildesley for making the long trip to show their support.

New Astley Open Show
8th April 2017

Chalvedon ABCs Harry Blackhall was out again today on the New Astley Open Show.

He took on the talented and more experienced boxer, Stevie Martin, from Harwich ABC. Harry came out in first round, slipping shots from his opponent and landing his own. Round two, Harry stuck to Stevie, forcing him to box on the back foot, landing some heavy blows, but he was also caught with great shots from Stevie, but undeterred, he came out strong in the last round with much of the same to take the win by way of a split points decision.

It was a great result for Hazza, back to winning ways.

Vange & Pitsea Dinner Show
21st April 2017

The Vange & Pitsea Dinner Show in memory of the late Frank Doyle was a great success. Chalvedon ABC had 8 boxers competing on the show.

First on, was young Billy Brewer, with his first Skills contest and the show opener. He boxed really well, with his long reach and controlled the bout throughout. Next was little Bobby Tildesley, who had a strong lad from Hastings. Bobby’s fitness showed this time out, beating his lad to the cleaner shots, winning by a unanimous decision.

Next was Louie Kirby, his opponent was a touch quicker with their shots. Louie’s lack of fitness showed, loosing his first bout bout a close split points score. Next, George Rushdon, he had a tall lad from Danson, who was more experienced. Again George was a bit quicker with his work, taking a good unanimous win and the best home boxer award. Providing hard training in the gym does pay off.

Arron Fitzgerald had a rematch with a strong lad from Dagenham. Arron’s long reach proved too much again for his opponent, which gave him a unanimous win. Next was our girl, Georgina Friswell. What a first bout for her. She faced a very strong opponent from Brighton & Hove. It was the perfect bout for both girls. The 2 of them went toe to toe for all 3 round. Georgina’s determination pulled her through, giving her a unanimous win and the Best Boxer Award for the night. Onto the two Senior boxers, first was Jake Brown, who although out of the ring fro more 5 years, Jake Faced the younger Liam Hepworth from Canvey. They went at it for all 3 rounds, with heavy blows from both lads, but Jake’s years and determination gave him the split win. Finally, Shaun Huntley (The Caveman), he boxed a great young prospect from Fairburn ABC, again some big heavy blows from both boxers. A bit of a messy bout at times, but unanimous win came Shaun’s way in the end.

All in all a great night for Chalvedon with a good skills bout, and 6 boxers from 7 getting the win. Thanks for all the support from Family & Friends

29th April 2017

Senior Novice 

The 2017 Senior Novice National Championships started this weekend in Tilbury. Connor Mulvey was the only boxer having to compete at this stage. His opponent was an experience lad from Braintree ABC. Connor took the occasion immediately, taking control of the bout. With excellent sustained work over the 3 x 3 minutes round, Connor came through with a comfortable unanimous points win. Conner now joins Gary Corcoran in the Eastern Counties Finals at 5 Lakes resort, Colchester next weekend.

After last weekends fantastic win, Connor Mulvey joined Gary Corcoran at the 5 Lakes Hotel in Essex for the Eastern Counties Finals of the Senior Novice Championship.

Gary had a tough awkward opponent in the Class A Finals for 2-10 bout boxers. Despite boxing extremely well over all 3 rounds, the very close 3-2 split decision proved just how close the bout was. Could easily have gone the other way.

Connor Mulvey had a boxer from Norwich Lads in his final. Almost straight from the first bell, the Norwich Lads boxer piled on the pressure. Conor rode the onslaught initially, before his fitness level showed an he came forward to command the bout. This continued throughout the entire contest, with Connor overwhelming his opponent enough to cause a standing 8 count in the third. Although the result was a surprising Split decision, 4-1, the right boxer got the result. Onto the Pre Quarter Finals at Chelmsford Cricket Ground next Friday, taking on the Home Counties.

Senior Novice Championships
2017 - Eastern Counties Finals

Chalvedon Boxing club made the trip to the Norwich Lads show with Conor Mulvey. Conor’s bout was a cross match with a great lad from Brighton & Hove. 3 x 3 minute rounds definitely suited Mulvey. He boxed clever using sharp footwork and angles to get his shots off. His opponent was more than worthy but didn’t come too close. Connor’s work was the cleaner and more consistent, which earned him the unanimous points win. Well done Conor, coming back strong after the disappointment of withdrawing from the Development Championships due ti illness.

Eastgate Open Show

Chalvedon Boxing Club hit the road again, with Conor boxing in Norwich and Sonny the opposite way in Bristol. Sonny was representing a Western Counties Select Team against the Irish Select Team, all the way from Cork.

Sonny boxed a more experienced Irish lad, in fact the bout against Sonny was his fiftieth. They had a very skillful bout, with both boys trying to draw each others moves, just like a chess match. Some big shots went in from Sonny and his opponent, but Sonny caught him with the better combinations to take the win by a unanimous points score.

Well worth the 3 hour trip.

Western Counties vs Irish Select

Chalvedon were up early on a Sunday morning after a few hours sleep from the night before. Its Georgina Frizwell’s big day. After traveling from York University the previous weekend to hear her opponent had withdrawn from the Semi Finals, she was more than ready.

Back in Essex again, she was up at 6am for the trip to Solihull. She was facing an opponent with far more experience than her in the final, but this did not faze her in the slightest.

National Senior Development 
Championship Finals

Georgina was that relaxed, she even went out for a fry up after the weigh in. After watching twelve bouts, it was show time for her. Georgina came out fast in the first round, using her jab time after time, to great effect. She had her opponent on the back foot for most of the round.

Round 2, both girls showed great skills but it was another round for the Chalvedon boxer.

Round 3, was a real test for Georgina, she dug deep to catch her girl with heavier and cleaner shots to get her hand raised as the title winner, National Development Champion for 2017 by a well deserved unanimous points decision.

This is Chalvedon’s first ever Female National Champion. A small support was there, with Georgina’s Parents, the ever attentive Karen and Sonny Hardy, with even the Club Chairman there to support as well. Another milestone for Chalvedon ABC.

Fairburn ABC
Dinner Show
13th October 2017

Two of Chalvedon’s youngsters made the short trip to the Prince Regent Hotel in Chigwell, on Friday night for the Fairburn ABC Dinner Show. After crawling through the traffic to the weigh in, Louie Kirby came in a bit over and ended up with a skills bout. He boxed a good lad from Fairburn. After a slow first round, Louie picked up the pace, cathcing his opponent with some great shots. A skills bout, so no losers, both boxers having their hands raised at the end. Next in was Billy Brewer. This was Billy’s first bout against a more experienced Fairburn lad so the pressure was on. billy went into the ring a touch nervous and showed it in the first round, as he couldn’t quite get his shots off quick enough. However, the nerves faded in the second and he started catching his opponent with some good shots. The third round saw Billy give his all, a lot of lads knowing they are down give up, but he dug in until the final bell. It sounded more like our home show with support he took. A very close loss for Billy this time but he will learn from it.

West Ham Open Show

A big well done tonight to Chalvedon’s Billy Brewer, he boxed a good little lad from West Ham Boxing Club on their home show.

NAGBC - Anglian Finals
Roundhouse Dagenham

Chalvedon’s Sonny Hardy lost his bout today on a close split decision to good friend and good boxer, Jack Wiffen from Sudbury ABC.

Harry Blackhall’s opponent was a no show, so now he progresses into the next round.

St Marys ABC Open Show

Another great show last night at St Marys ABC in Kent. Big Ted had another great skills bout. A great performance once again from Teddy Felmo. He moved around the ring well, throwing some good combination, with good use of the jab, and boxed well to instruction. Next up was Peter Varey, he had a good bout after a bit of a slow start, he picked up the pace and found his range, but it was too late for Pete to get the decision this time. Peter and Teddy both due to box again on the Hockley Show tomorrow. Last of Ours, was Louis Hurst. He had a great bout with an excellent opponent. Louis’s fast hands and footwork proved to be to much for his lad, cathcing him with combinations and fast counters for all 3 rounds, earning Louis the deserved points win.

Hockley Open Show

Another great night of boxing on Saturday on the Hockley Show. 3 Lads attended a fantastic show.

First up was young Teddy Fleming, for another skills bout. He boxed a more experienced lad from Holland Shore. The two boys were perfect for each other. Big Ted’s fast hands and fancy footwork was a bit much for his opponent. Ted is improving every time

Next up was Peter Varey, he boxed a good lad from Progess BC. Peters performance was faster than his last, the night before. He was on his toes and throwing nice shots from the first bell. He had a good first round, slowing down in the second. His taller opponent came back in the second. Peters fitness let him down in the last, to give the other lad the points win.

Last up was George Rushden. We took a chance with a slightly more experienced challenger from Ockley BC all the way from Bognor Regis. The two boys came out fast, catching each other with big shots. The first round was very close, George settled better in the second and got back to his boxing, edging the lead. The third went Our way again, with Goerge taking the win by a split points decision. The bout will go again soon.

Well done to all 3 boys, and thanks again for the tremendous support.

NABGC National

Todays was Harry Blackhalls day to shine. Harry boxed in the National NAGBCs Pre Quarter Finals against a good strong lad from Farnham. Both boys came out fast in the first round, with Harry catching his opponent with some heavy blows, but he hung in there, catching Harry with some return shots. Harry, the stronger of the two, stalked the Farnham lad for the remaining rounds, banging in body and head shots to take the well deserved win by way of a unanimous decision. He now progresses to the Quarter Finals next weekend at the Roundhouse, Dagenham, on Sunday. Well done Hazza Blackhall

Five Star Open Show

What a terrific night of boxing on the Five Star Open Show. First up for us was Our Big Teddy Flemo, another great skills bout with a good lad from Holland Shore. Ted did what he does best, with great footwork and speed. He is ready for a competitive bout now. Next up, was Finlay Lewis, another skills bout but as good as a scoring bout. Fin took to it like a duck to water, boxing a good home lad from Five Star. Next on, was naughty boy, Louie Kirby, he again boxed a home boy from Five Star. Louie’s awkward south paw style proved too much for his opponent. Kirby pulled it out of the bag to take the unanimous points win. Next was Billy Brewer, he had a rematch with a good lad from West Ham. Billy beat the lad last time out, and the boy came to win this time round. Both lads went at it for 3 hard rounds, our Billy caught the boy with some great shots and dug his heels in for the third, but it was to be this time. We thought he’d done enough, but it was close bout. Last on was Bobster Bobby Tildesley, again a rematch against a good West Ham lad. A completely different bout from their first encounter. Bobby came with fire in both fists. He had a great bout that wouldn’t look out of place in a National Final. For me the best bout of the night. Level going into the last, again We thought Bobby edged the win, but it went the other way. It really was that close. Thanks to Eddie at Five Star for getting all the lads on. Thanks once again to all the family and friend giving vital support. Well done everyone.

Northolt Open Show

Another great display of boxing by these 2 lads at the Northolt show. First was Teddy Flemo, he had another good skills bout with a strong home boxer. Teddy knows his way around the ring now and is a pleasure to watch with his fancy hand & footwork. Second was Bobby Tildesley, He took on a great little home boxer, Jimmy McDonaugh. Both lads went for it from the first to the last bell, with Bobby looking the stronger of the two.

He caught McDonaugh with some good shots, especially in the third round, but he was on the wrong end of a very close split

decision. I must say, the Bobster has been very unlucky in the last 2 bouts, it only seems to push him harder. His time will come.

Smokies Open Show

Friday 15th December, Chalvedon’s Teddy Flemo, AKA Big Ted, was on the road agin, tonight at the Smokies Boxing Show in Tilbury. A great line up with Ted opening the show. Although it was a skills bout, he takes it so seriously, he worked at his opponent in the first, and boxed really well to instructions for the corner. As always, he is a pleasure to watch. Always entertaining. A great asset to the ever growing team of young talented boys and girls at the club.

Eastbourne Open Show

Chalvedon Boxing Club made the long trip for a great night at the Eastbourne Boxing Show. An amazing venue, with some well matched bouts. First up, George Rushden, he had a return bout against Luke Beaver from Ockley. George got the win first time round, but the pressure was on him, in Luke’s own back yard. George looked so much better this time, boxing well to instructions from

his corner. He got the first and second rounds in the bag, by sitting back a bit, taking time to get his shots off and relaxing. The third was a busier round, with Luke momentarily drawing George into a fight, but he got back to his boxing to take the unanimous win.

Next up was Hazza Blackhall. He was up against ex team mate and talented, Aldine Martinez, now at Ockley.

Aldine, well known for his long left hooks, caught Harry with some great shots in the first, but Harry stuck to Aldine and closed the gap on him, cutting the ring down. Harry caught Aldine with some great bent arm shots and was the busier of the two. He finally took the fire out of Aldine in the third round to take the unanimous win. Well done both lads, and all involved at Eastbourne Boxing Club

Smokies Open Show

Next was Sammy Neil. It was his first skills bout with a lad from Lion Boxing Club. Sammy landed some lovely head shots on his opponent in the first round, then dropped to the jab but still proved too much for the opponent, who retired at the end of the round. Sammy showed great respect for the lad by making sure he was ok.

Last, but not least, was Louie Kirby. He had a rematch against the lad from Five Star Boxing Club. Louie was on fire tonight, working well off the jab. Some great footwork and fast combinations, caught the opponent out time after time, earning Louie the unanimous points win.

Teddy matched the lad in the first round. He got stuck in the corner boxing off the ropes in the second, which doesn’t suit his style. Round 3, was a really tough round for both lads, going at it from start to finish. It wasn’t to be this time for Flemo, he will learn a great deal and come back stronger.

First up was our Billy Brewer. He boxed a smaller lad that stuck to Billy like a limpet, not allowing

Billy to settle and box. The boy was throwing little gittery shots to the body and arms, not one good shot landed from him. Billy landed the cleaner shots with more force, but the lads more aggressive style won the judges eye.

Next up was Bobby Tildesley. He was having a rematch with a home boxer so the pressure was one from the start. Bobby came out fast in the first round and boxed well. Happy with that round, he upped his game in the second but it looked more even. His opponent came on strong in the last part of the third to finish the victor. We thought we did enough to win both bouts, but it wasn’t to be. Both boys will come back stronger and better from it. Thanks to all the support, the noise was unbelievable.

Well done to all three lads and the superb traveling support.

Chalvedon were on the road again last night, to the big Eastgate Dinner Show. Only one lad on, Levi Crabb, he had a last minute change after his opponent fell ill.

Chalvedon boing club had a day of mixed emotions at the Pre Quarter Finals.

First on, was Bobby Tildesley. We knew he was up against it, taking on the number one ranked boxed for the age and weight in the country. Bobby came out in the first taking a big shot, that would have been enough for most minors. He came back from it and boxed well, but he took an 8 count and had to re group. The second round was much better, with Bobby catching his opponent with some great shots to take the round. The third round Bobby took an 8 count early in the round for a very soft blow. Bobby dug in deep to catch up again, but took another 8 count that meant the bout was over. Bobby’s opponent spoke to him afterwards, explaining he’d never had such a hard bout. Well done Booby, you’re a rising start that will come back brighter and stronger.

Second on, was Josh Crabb. He took on a good lad, ranked number 2 in the country. Josh met the lad earlier in he’s boxing career, coming out second best, so the pressure was on. Josh came out in the first and worked out the lad. He stuck to his game, landing some good shots to take the round. Josh came out in the second knowing he was in front and settled nicely working off the jab. Whatever he took, he countered back to take the round. Round 3, saw them both going for it, but Josh had done enough in the earlier round to take the win and put him through to the next round. Well done Josh and good luck.

Last, but no means least, was Louis Hurst. He took on another good lad. Louis was between weights. Not wanting to clash with his team mate, he went up a weight. He opponent looked like he came down a weight and looked physically stronger. He moved around the ring well, catching his opponent with some good shots, but didn’t settle enough. He opponent landed the better shots, not phasing Louis at all, but impressing the judges enough to take the win. Unlucky Louis.

Eastgate Open Show 
11th May 2018

Chalvedon were on the road again, this time all the way to the Eastgate Show, with young Alfie Banyard. He made the trip to Bury St Edmunds for his second skills bout, with a good little lad from Whittlesey.

After his nerves settled, he boxed really well to instruction, working well of the jab and setting traps to catch his opponent with some good shots. A very well matched bout that will go again in the future.
