Talented amateur boxing twins entertain again

CROWD-PLEASING twins Cameron and Reece Wade, from Lowestoft ABC, were in action at Attleborough ABC’s boxing show at the Connaught Hall and endured mixed fortunes.

Reece faced the fit and well-schooled Richard Day from Eastgate ABC in Bury St Edmunds, and once again had too much for his opponent as he did in the original bout between the pair.

Cameron, meanwhile, put up a gutsy fight against the host club’s Levi Dennis, losing on points after a close scrap.

From the opening bell Day tried to stamp his authority on Reece by going straight on the attack and and forcing his opponent on the defensive, but the Lowestoft boxer side-stepped and brought his own punches into play in a close round.

The second round saw Reece put together some fast left-right punches straight through the classic guard of the Bury boxer. As the round progressed the action became more intense, with the Lowestoft boxer in control.

The final round was non-stop from the bell and it was Reece who kept the pace going, scoring with classic straight combinations through the middle right up to the final bell, where again his hand was raised in victory

Cameron’s bout against Dennis, who won the bronze medal at the Pirrka Cup held in Finland in May, was also a return bout.

From the beginning of the first round Attleborough ABC boxer Dennis knew he was facing a different Cameron this time out, the Lowestoft boxer keeping his boxing tidy and together, punching straight down the middle and catching him with solid combinations.

This round soon had the fans on their feet, as the local boxer had to use all of his skills to stay in the contest as the action moved around the ring, back and forth as the pair traded blows.

The second session went the same as the first, with neither boxer gaining the upper-hand.

The third session saw Dennis start to move forward more as Wade began to tire, making the Lowestoft boxer move on to his back foot and counter punch.

Although the judges gave Dennis the decision, there were only two points between them at the end.
