Debut victory

JUNIOR Liam Sircar, Buxton ABC’s newest squad addition, made a winning start on his debut with a points win at a show in Kidsgrove.

Sircar faced a stiff challenge against an opponent competing in his eighth contest, but his well-schooled game plan and determination resulted in a close first round during which Sircar looked comfortable.

A forceful mixture of jabbing and straight combinations in the second round saw the gap between the boxers widen in favour of the Buxton fighter. Urged to stay on the front foot and push the pace of the contest, Sircar forced a standing count in the final round on his way to a points win and a successful start to his boxing career.
