BRUNEL Amateur Boxing Club youngster Jaden King had to work overtime in Cornwall at the weekend to get the better of Bude-based opponent Nathan Martin over four rounds.

Both youngsters met three weeks ago in a relentless tussle that went down to the wire, and Saturday’s fight proved no different as King claimed a points victory.

The Brunel talent had minimal time to put together a bout plan, but coach Brian Roberts only had positive words to say about King following his latest success.

Home favourite Martin had his moments, no more so than in the second round when King was pinned against the ropes and consequently weathered some heavy shots to the head and body.

But King dug deep in rounds three and four to earn a confidence-boosting win.

Alex Masters was also in action in a Junior Novice Final against an opponent from St Albans, London.

Both fighters had moments of success, but Foley threw the straighter combinations to record the win.

Peter Stow also suffered a loss to a Launceston opponent, while Matthew Wootten defeated his opponent on split decision.

Meanwhile, Raid Toonah experienced his very first contest in the ring as Malmesbury’s James Hull provided opposition in a skills bout.
