Westway ABC fighters have been continuing their fine form in different parts of the country.

Twenty-one-year-old Mitch Wedge made it six out of six when he saw off Ryan Sharpe in a bout that was at the top of the bill at Sheffield Lane ABC.

The all-action Wedge showed fine head movement against his taller opponent in the early stages, before working the head and body, silencing the home crowd.

Sharpe began feeling the pressure in the second and the third, but Wedge kept his nerve and forced a standing count just before the end of the bout, which was enough to earn a unanimous points win.

George Horner was also on the road in St Ives when he took on Tom Martin in a rematch.

Martin had recently signed pro terms with Frank Maloney, but this didn’t stop Horner battling it out in four rounds of toe-to-toe action.

In the end Martin ran out points winner, but Horner did himself proud.

Also in St Ives, Westway’s Jake Phillips was too strong and too busy for Connor Moore of Stamford.

Matt Tinker had a trek north to Newcastle for his bout with Geoff Mulholland.

The experienced Mulholland had recently reached the quarter-finals of the ABAs, but Matt’s awkward southpaw style kept him at bay.

Tinker upped the pace and late on and won on points.
