Unlucky Tommy Taylor misses out in boxing final

Eastgate ABC boxer Tommy Taylor had to settle for second in the final of the 75kg, class 3 ABA Schoolboys’ final.

Tommy, 15, who goes to Sudbury Upper School, slipped to an 11-5 defeat at the hands of Liverpool’s Joe Saunderson, in Mansfield, on Sunday.

From the start, Saunderson moved onto the front foot, scoring with an early right to the head.

Tommy replied with a counter right of his own but the momentum stayed with Saunderson.

Heads clashed in the second before Tommy landed a decent right to the head and just missed with another.
