Moneyfields’ season continued with a double victory in Dorset.

Brady Samways and Isaac Lock were both winners as they travelled to Sturminster Newton.

Samways’ impressive season continued as he delivered a unanimous win over Taylor Wakefield.

The 34kg talent followed up making it to the quarter-finals of the National Schoolboys’ Championships with another fine showing.

Boxing out of a strong upright stance, Samways jabbed to decent effect throughout to get the verdict comfortably.

His coach Ted Harris was impressed with Samways’ performance and feels there is room for decent development from his charge.

Harris said: ‘Brady boxed very well indeed.

‘He has had a good season and the great thing is he’s shown a lot of improvement as well.

‘He landed good shots all the way through the contest.

‘In the end, he comfortably coasted all three rounds.’

Samways wasn’t the only winner as Lock did enough to get the verdict in his clash with Portland’s Kane Hamilton.

The 37kg boxer took a majority verdict to rack up a success on his record.

Harris was again pleased to see Lock deliver.

He said: ‘It was a good showing from Isaac and it’s always pleasing to pick up a win.

‘He’s coming on quite nicely as well.

‘He has been getting better and better as he has gone on and we are pleased with how much he has come on.

‘The boy’s got a lot of compliments from people watching at the show.

‘There were a lot of people saying that is was clear that they have both been well schooled.

‘That’s always a really nice thing to hear.’

Moneyfields are set to hold a show on Friday, May 6, at their base in Dover Road, Copnor.

Tickets are now available for the event, with around 15 bouts expected to be staged featuring mostly local talents.

Tickets for the show cost £10 and £5. For details contact (023) 9264 0540.
