Massey title joy

Chapel-en-le-Frith boxer Jack Massey, boxing out of Northside ABC Manchester, entered the Senior Elite ABAs on Friday, boxing at the Irish Heritage Centre in Manchester,

Boxing this year at 86kg cruiserweight, he secured the North West title against Reece Fowler from Preston and Fulwood ABC.

Massey started scoring at will with his long straight jab and following up with straight rights and hooks to the body. The Preston boxer never stopped advancing with his attacks, aiming for the body to try and slow his opponent down.

The second round started much as the first with Massey scoring at will, and this continued into the third round as the Chapel fighter ran out the winner. Massey will next box in the quarter-finals in Newcastle.
