Sudbury Amateur Boxing Club's Archie Bennett-Bonner victorious at Thetford Show

By Sport Sudbury

Sudbury Amateur Boxing Club continued their positive and busy start to the season with two members in action on the Thetford Show.

Roman Road, 11, showed a marked improvement in his second ever skills contest as he grew from a tentative start against Jay Russell in their 30kg contest.

Archie Bennett-Bonner, 15, took a split verdict against home boxer Archie Stannard at 60kg.

The Sudbury fighter started well behind his jab and boxed neatly to take the first round, but dropped the second. In the third it was all Bennett-Bonner, as he boxed at long range with constant movement to stop the Thetford lad setting up the big attacks.
