Flower Earns Respect of Home Crowd

Newtown's Middleweight Jon Flower fought Darren Davies of Worcester Amateur Boxing Club in front of a passionate local Worcester crowd, on Friday (18th May). Flower was quick to earn the respect of the home support by putting on one of his best displays of the season.

Davies gamely attempted to stand toe to toe with Flower in the first round, but towards the end of the round showed signs that he had felt the full force of some of Flower's powerful body shots. In the second round Flower continued to chase his opponent, picking his shots, although Davies was having some success by attempting to keep more distance and box Flower with some straighter punching and quicker combinations. In the third round Flower stepped up another gear displaying his superior form and fitness. Throughout the round Flower continued to find his range during his relentless attacks, throwing hooks to the head and body.

Despite Davies rallying impressively throughout Flower finally earned a deserved points decision.
