University of Brighton boxer Adrianne Phebey remained undefeated, stopping her opponent in the third round.

Phebey was up against a taller and heavier boxer in the shape of Harriet Pippen from the University of West England but used her smaller frame to her advantage.

Starting fast, ‘Pheebs’ moved herself quickly around the ring avoiding shots and was able to pick off her opponent.

The referee stepped in after ten seconds of round three and waved off Pippen, who was in no state to continue.

The win boosted an already impressive season for Brighton University boxers.

The club members have fought 25 bouts and won 21, making them the top University boxing team in the country. Coach Adam Haniver said, “It was another fantastic performance from Adrianne who is now two from two, both by stoppages.

“She will now face Helen Tamlyn of Portsmouth University on Saturday (23rd March) at the Portsmouth boxing show.”

Haniver has assembled a strong group of boxers, Phebey being the latest off the production line.

She handed her opponent a standing eight count in the first and second rounds while she banged in combinations of hits to the head and body.

By the start of the third round the Brighton boxer was well into her rhythm and saw off her rival strongly.
