There have been plenty of fantastic results for Carlisle Villa ABC to celebrate recently.

Over the course of last weekend, the club were involved in three shows in as many days, with eight boxers taking part in total - two involved in non-scoring contests - and the other six claiming victories.

On Friday night, Carlisle Villa were involved at the Furness Catholic ABC dinner show.

First up for the Villa was 12-year-old Watson Miller who boxed Workington’s Elliot Murray in a well-contested skills bout.

Senior Carlisle Villa boxers Mikey Burgess and Gary Johnston were towards the top of the bill, so they both had to wait to showcase their skills.

Burgess was up against Gregg Brady from the home club.

After a bright start, Burgess allowed Brady to catch him with a straight left-right combination. But after taking a few seconds to compose himself, Burgess then landed unanswered combinations to finish the round strongly.

In the second round, Burgess continued to put the pressure on, and there was no lapse of concentration in this round.

Burgess then eased off in the middle of the third round, but stepped it up again with 30 seconds left to seal the win.

Then, 20-year-old Villa man Gary Johnston faced another local lad, Owen Kirk, in a senior bout and he claimed a success as Kirk’s corner retired their charge.

On Saturday, three more boxers took part on Wigton ABC’s annual show.

Ellis Young, of Watson’s Gym, proved to be too heavy to take on 12-year-old Villa prospect Jack Lindsay in a competitive bout. So, instead, a skills bout was held.

Lindsay’s club-mate Thomas Moore, 11, continued to impress with another unanimous points win against Blackrod ABC’s Ian Barrick.

And, finally, 16-year-old Evan Ford faced local favourite Jack Dixon, having stepped up with only a few hours’ notice.

Ford was in fantastic form throughout the first round.

In the second round, though, both boxers held the centre of the ring, each landing solid shots but both standing firm, with neither wanting to give any ground. The round could have gone either way, but it was Ford who just shaded it.

Then, the third and final round started off at a terrific pace and, once again, both boxers continued to hold the centre of the ring in a fantastic advert for amateur boxing, but it was Ford who won.

Heading north of the border, Tyler Brockbank and Burgess claimed Villa wins on Doonhamers ABC’s show in Dumfries, before Marc Haughan’s bout on Sunday fell through.
