Western Counties triumph in annual match with Navy

October 14, 2021 | by Matt Halfpenny


Western Counties faced the Royal Navy in an annual match, held by the Bristol Sporting Club, on Monday night.

The Bristol Sporting Club was formed in 1967 by a group of Bristol-based business men to promote and encourage amateur boxing which, at the time, had very little support.

Since then, countless international boxers and competitors have gone on to secure professional honours.

The latest contenders walked out to box at the glittering Bristol Hotel, where Sporting Club members were treated to nine contests, consisting of two support bouts and seven in the team match.

It saw the Western Counties clinch a 6-1 overall win, with the results as follows:

Support bouts 

Ryan Perks (Downend – Bristol) lost on points to Albilio Conceico (Plympton)

Jay Holloway (Downend – Bristol) won on points against Conner Herbert (Cwmbran)

Brian Musawura (Blue Flames – Taunton) won by RSC against AET Terrence McIlroy
