Amateur boxing; sport in brief.
Lightweight Aaron Howdon has now won three in a row after getting stuck into Lambton Street's Connor Pearson in muggy conditions on the hosts' afternoon show on Wearside, winning a unanimous nod. * ELLIS Park and Tom McGarry were not hanging around as they handed East Middlesbrough ABC two stoppage wins on the Hartlepool Catholic Club show at Owton Manor Social Club.
Park was all action from the outset as he got his first win at the second attempt, stopping Ashington's Pete Chisholm in the second round following a trio of standing counts.
Featherweight McGarry has only had two bouts but is gaining a reputation as a quick finisher. He reeled off his second straight stoppage win by halting the Catholic Club's Michael Hogg with a nose injury in the first round.
Active East Middlesbrough flyweight Rob Bennett is now 6-0 after defeating D Bate on the Lambton Street show in Sunderland. Bennett will be the only East Middlesbrough senior boxer on the club's home show at Brambles Farm Social Club this Saturday, June 2, as schoolboys and juniors take centre stage in 14 bouts. Start time is 1pm.
