Gareth Macey enjoyed a successful first outing of the new amateur season.

The 13-year-old, who boxes for the New Saints club in St Neots, forced a second-round stoppage when taking on Josh Bennett, of Holland Shore ABC, at a Colchester ABC show last Saturday night.

Macey forced two standing counts before the referee waved off the fight.

Bill Davis (10) and Stanley Smith (11) both impressed in skills bouts on the same show.
