New Saints ABC talent Gareth Macey warmed up for a big National Junior Championships bout with victory.

Macey was one of the three fighters from the Eaton Socon club to make the long trip to Dorset last Saturday for a Sturminster Newton ABC show.

Macey stopped Ryan Treveskus (Mayflower ABC) in the first round of their contest – a confidence-booster ahead of an Eastern Counties Finals clash against national development champion Dean Allumn (Newmarket) this weekend.

Dylan Warner (points win against Titchfield ABC opponent Olly Blyth) and debutant Leon Isaacs (stoppage success against Nelson Ray of Ferndown ABC) also impressed in Dorset.

Three other New Saints talents were in action closer to home on the Ernies ABC show in Chatteris.
