Ludlow Amateur Boxing Club's James Key narrowly fails to win UBC Central Novice featherweight title
LUDLOW boxer James Key narrowly failed in his bid to win the UBC Central Novice featherweight belt at 57kg.
Key gave a superb performance before losing out to Leamington Spa’s Michael Jephcott in an absorbing three-round battle at Kidderminster Harriers.
Key won the first round and delighted his travelling army with a show of stamina and strength in last weekend’s closely-fought competition.
Ludlow Amateur Boxing Club coach Colin Woodfield said both boxers received a standing ovation and the contest had rounded off a fabulous night.
Ludlow’s Chris Preece has also been in top form, securing a majority victory over home boxer Lewis Ball in a 68kg contest at Donnington ABC’s show.
Preece listened to the game-plan and silenced the crowd by the end of the first round.
He went on to secure a richly-deserved majority decision in Friday’s showdown.
