ALLOA Boxing Club has recently had a number of fighters compete at the Scottish Novice Championships.

Over the course of two weekends, the club had five competitors taking part, starting with young Lennon Murray, although the 11-year-old narrowly lost out in a split decision at the quarter-final stage.

Senior middleweight Lewis Thomson was next up against Dimatar Ivan from Leith Victoria.

Lewis booked his place in the next weekend’s round of fighting with a unanimous points victory.

JC Whalen was next in a semi-final contest against Jamie Cook. After some heavy body shots the referee jumped in to stop the fight and send JC through to the final.

Lewis Stevenson was the next Alloa fighter to book his place in the next round with a victory against Michael Stewart.

Last up was Nathan Thomson who came through his semi-final against James Scott unscathed to get a place in the final.

The second weekend saw Alloa have three boys in the final and middleweight Lewis in a semi-final contest.

First up was 12-year-old JC up against Shaun Boyle. In an entertaining contest, JC lost out on a 3-2 split decision to earn a silver medal.

The second final saw 17-year-old Nathan Thomson back in action against Connor McFarlane. Despite losing the first round, Nathan stormed back and won the gold.

Lewis Thomson was up next in his semi-final against Mark McNeil. After a spirited performance, the Alloa boxer booked his place in the final which will take place on November 18 at the Chirnside show.

Super heavyweight Jordan Ewing was last up against Paul Clark. Standing at 6’4 and weighing 123kg, Ewing made short work of this final, twice knocking his opponent to the ground early on before the referee stopped the contest to take the gold medal.
