CITY DUO IMPRESS ON THE ROAD AWAY FROM HOME

In action was Charlie Dorling and Alfie Gittens, two lads that were keen to impress. 

First up was Dorling, he faced a much taller Matthew Jepson (St Ives) in their 59kg bout. Jepson started strong and established his range early, leaving it hard work for Dorling to cut down, however finding his jab, you felt there was more to come from this youth bout.

Second round Dorling started to get on top, with his midlands opponent looking to feel the pace a little, the range was cut down and Dorling was letting his hands go, in the third Dorling landed a cracking right hand which forced referee to step in and give a count. A brilliantly matched bout witnessed two equal lads go at it, however it was the City of Hull of lad that got the nod from all three judges. Giving Dorling only his second career win.

Next up was Alfie Gittens, he faced Michael Draper in their 58kg showdown. A dominant display by Gittens the taller boxer between the pair. Draper was struggling to get past the awkward southpaw stance of Gittens, returning to his corner after a very difficult first round. 

The second round brought the end of the bought, with a timely body shot followed up with a great shot over the top forced the referee to issue a count to Draper. The writing was on the wall as Gittens moved in for the finish, forcing the referee to call the bout off midway through round 2.
