John Hedges among those who impress on Hoddesdon show

TRIO OF VICTORS: Abid, King and Hedges with their Title belts

HODDESDON Boxing Academy staged a sell out show at the Paringdon Sports Centre with 11 evenly matched contests which included seven Title belt bouts.

National Youth finalist, at 75kgs John Hedges captured the English Youth Belt with a resounding points decision over a very strong Joel Garratt (Avalon ABC) in a crowd pleasing three-threes. Hedges held the centre of the ring looking to work off his lead. But he was surprised to find himself on the seat of his shorts once a hook had clipped him. This sprung Hedges into a sense of urgency and he controlled proceedings from then on, a sharp counter inflicting a standing eight count on Garratt before a combination in round two forced another standing count. Garratt was brave and did take heavy shots going into the last round but survived before succumbing on points.
