Boxing

Narrow defeat

ABERDEEN’S Treetops Hotel was the venue for Arbroath Boxing Club’s Lewis Keith to make his debut in the ring.

He faced Connor Cowe, Kincorth, over three fast and competitive rounds of boxing.

Competing in the 1998 54 kilogram class, both these first timers gave their all. Keith used good jabs and crosses, Cowe worked for the inside position with short hooks and body shots.

Round two followed a similar style and a close well matched contest went into the final round with the result in the balance.

Cowe then got the nod from the judges winning by the slimmest of margins on the computer scoring system.
