A STRONG display from Haddenham ABC's Matt Blair, earned him an impressive victory at a prestigious boxing event at the weekend.
Dozens of talented young fighters from across the country made the trip to the home of Chatteris ABC for a night of top boxing on Saturday (May 30) with Haddenham's Blair matched up against Steffan Johnson of Whittlesey ABC.
The two fighters gave the ropes a real testing as they went about their work in what was an intensely fought battle. Come the end of an exhaustive encounter though, it was the Haddenhan youngster who was awarded the decision.
There wasn't such good news for Hadenham's Zac Rush however, who narrowly lost on points to Lawrence Manning from Wisbech.
