BOXING FIGHT NIGHT 8th of November 2014
From the coaches corner:
Moranbah turned out a great night in support of our awesome boxing team at Moranbah Boxing And Sporting Club. I can't express how proud I was of all the team members who boxed and supported each other showcasing high level of skills, determination and sportsmanship that Moranbah can be very proud of. The support of the parents, friends and general community who came along to inspire the boys was second to none. The hard work and commitment our team has put in week after week in the gym, and tournament after tournament all year round was rewarded with the overwhelming show of support that lifted our boxers to perform exceptionally well both in victory and defeat.
Nathanial Gray won a close decision against Dysart's talented State champion Sam Lyons. Kane Benbow was up against Northern Beaches Caleb Childs. The judges went with a decision to Caleb at the end of the three rounds.
Our senior team members Carl Exmann, Bernie Lund, Beau Lawton and Leo Nicolson all weighed in hoping to gain a match. Carl and Bernie were pre-matched and were devastated when their opponents were a no show. Due to the no show, Bernie and Carl as well as Leo and Beau decided to have a hit out with each other. They all put on a great show practicing all their punches and strategies. Corey Heaton was up against Dysart's Ben Nader who was stepping up in weight and age. Corey and Ben boxed an exhibition match in which they both showcased their skills, showing good skills in both attack and defence. At the end of the action packed three rounds Kyle received a close decision.
The Main Event of the evening was a rematch of the State Super Middleweight final between Townsville's State Champion Hayden Hooper (who is now down to middleweight) and Moranbah's own Ian Phillips. Ian started a little slower in the rematch giving the first round to Hayden. Ian need to be more proactive to sway the fight in his favour in the second round. Ian started applying the pressure late in the second which evened the match on the judges score cards. With the contest in the balance, Ian dug deep in the third round being the aggressor and landing some strong punches which swayed the judges in his favour giving him a decision win in a very close fight. A big thank you for all the clubs who supported the fight night, we appreciate your supportvery much!!!!
