Aylesbury Boxing Club’s remarkable run of success continues after a hat-trick of wins at their latest fight meet.

Three fighters travelled to Harlow after being called up to represent the Home Counties against Essex.

First up was Charlie Solomons donning his first home counties vest. While he was a comparative novice compared to the other boxers, Solomons took no time to live up to his ‘Sledgehammer’ nickname and punished his opponent on the ropes and, breaking broke his nose at the end of the first.

The young fighter was chasing the stoppage in the third, however it was not to be, as his opponent survived the final onslaughts and it was a clear unanimous decision for Solomons.

Up next was power puncher Shoib Mohammed against Essex ABA’s Jake Sparks. Motivated by his razor thin defeat at the home show, Mohammed outclassed his opponent in every respect, his power punches drawing applause and gasps from the crowd. Mohammed won by a lopsided unanimous decision.

Last up for Aylesbury was ‘Serious’ Sam Fitzgerald, against the fearsome Essex southpaw Ryan Ayton.

Ayton had his moments but was no match for Fitzgerald’s superior hand speed. Humble Fitzgerald celebrated little, as his hand was raised for another unanimous victory.

Coach Andy Watkins said the boxers had done Aylesbury proud.

“They gave a fine account of themselves, they left it all in the ring and carried high the Aylesbury Boxing Club values through their sportsmanship, respect and humility.

Three wins from three bouts is fantastic on a regional platform and is a testament our boxers dedication.”
