West Kingsdown box their way to National Championships

West Kingsdown Boxing Club have a boxer going into the National Junior ABA Championships, Harvey Martin.

Martin will box at the start of March for the Southern Counties Championship against Chichester’s unbeaten Ben Cooper. WKD trainer Mickey Bowden said: “He is in the under 75kg category, has trained hard, had great sparring and looking forward to the challenge”.

Meanwhile, the club started their 2019 campaign with two clear point wins on the Rumbles Boxing Academy show on Saturday 16th February held in Sittingbourne.

Sam Whittaker boxed beautifully on the back foot against a strong Engwu Limbu (Ashford) and Sam Woodhead boxed with intelligent aggression to outscore Henry Taylor also of Ashford. These two youth boxers are in the middle weight division.

A number of West Kingsdown boxers will be making their debuts on the club’s home show which is billed as ‘Friday Fight Night’ on 29th March. Tickets are available through the club.
