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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
