Brighton University and Hailsham and Lewes boxers Connor Sturt and Ryan Conaghan were both in exhilirating form last Thursday at the Titchfield show in Hampshire.

Welterweight Sturt lost a narrow points decision to Titchfield’s Freddie Mutenure but, given the high quality of the contest, both boxers were awarded ‘bout of the night’ trophies.

Bantamweight Conaghan took on Luke Reynolds of Oakmead Bournemouth ABC in a fantastic eye-catching performance, moving his head well to close down his opponent and score to the head and body at will. Ryan eventually took the bout on a unanimous decision.

Both fighters will be boxing in the BUCS finals in Sheffield this Saturday, along with fellow boxers Amber Withers and Taka Yamagishi.
