Josh Edwards boxing is a product of Bognor-based Ockley Boxing Club’s new home, the Jeneses community centre in the town - and showed great promise in a recent outing.
Coached travelled with the 16-year-old to Crawley for a contest with Crawley ABC 17-year-old Tommy Cash.
Edwards started the first round working behind a stiff jab, pushing his opponent back. He took the first round with ease.
In the second round, brave Cash met Edwards head on for a real battle but was nullified by a variety of punches. Cash received a standing eight count.
In the third and final round, Edwards continued to box well, securing a points victory.
Edwards will now meet James Gray from Leigh Park at an Ockley home show in their new gym.
Coach Clinton Gower said: “I cannot wait for the next one.”
