EIGHTEEN bouts entertained spectators at Emeralds Boxing Club's first open show in more than four years.

Chippenham's Constitutional Club played host to the evening with Emerald's providing 13 of the 36 fighters on the night.

A series of skills bouts - aimed at attracting 10-year-olds that are not old enough to compete in boxing bouts - started the evening with Jake Edwards, Ewan Doig and Jack Burge all featuring.

The first competitive bout saw Emerald's Katie Doig face Chloe Passmore, of Taunton ABC.

Doig won by unanimous decision, a result which seemingly inspired Leo Riozzi to victory over Tyler Hunt in the following fight.

Jaden King was unlucky to miss out on a decision against Javir Sangar, of Gator ABC.

King showed plenty of determination, impressing with a series of combinations shots, but ultimately missed out.

A majority points decision went against Thomas Hardy in his bout with Lennon Swords, of Marston ABC, while Blake Batson met his match in Owen Paddock moments later when his corner retired him.

Connor Gray proved a crowd pleaser against Jesse Brandon when winning on points before Sam Miller narrowly missed out against Liam Smith, of Launceston ABC, in a closely-fought contest.

The final bout of the evening saw Kesar Singh face Ran Cook - also from Launceston, Cook winning by a majority points decision.

Prior to the action in the ring, Emeralds donated a signed Chris Eubank Jr boxing glove to Chippenham Chief's junior rugby team ahead of their upcoming tour.

The glove fetched £250 with money being donated towards the club's upcoming rugby tour.
