Tom Morris beat Coventry University's M Kamran at Walsall's Bescot Stadium
5:00pm Friday 18th October 2013 in Sport
BURFORD’S Tom Morris has been celebrating after gaining his maiden boxing triumph, writes Paul Rogers.
The fighter had been disqualified in his previous outing against Heart of Devon’s Nathan Hatton.
But despair turned to joy for Morris last weekend when he defeated Coventry University’s M Kamran by a unanimous decision at Walsall’s Bescot Stadium.
Morris is a Ludlow Amateur Boxing Club member and is also a cagefighter.
Ludlow ABC vice-chairman Colin Woodfield said it was a pleasure to be in Morris’ corner.
“Tom won by unanimous decision, winning all three rounds, and showed his true boxing skills,” said Woodfield.
“Tom listened to the game-plan and followed it through right to the end of the bout and was a true crowd pleaser.
“It was true boxing from start to finish and it was a pleasure to be in his corner.”
Fellow Ludlow ABC member Ashley Moule fought at Tamworth ABC’s home dinner gala last Friday night, but came unstuck against Patrick Doherty.
Woodfield said Moule was unfortunate in his bout and Doherty was a very strong, technical boxer.
“Ashley put up a good defence, trying to push the home boxer to the limits, but came out on the wrong side of a unanimous decision,” said Woodfield.
Both Morris and Moule are due to fight next on Thursday, November 7 in Cannock, Staffordshire.
Meanwhile, Woodfield’s son, Chadd Woodfield, is set to compete at Telford and Wrekin’s Boxing Academy Show tonight.
Fellow Ludlow ABC member Arnold Edmonds is also on the bill at the extravaganza at Anstice Memorial Hall, Madeley, Telford.
