Club take Heart from first win
BOXERS from Torbay's newest amateur club turned out to take part in a show in Bodmin on Saturday – gaining their club's first win in the process.
Heart of Devon ABC, based in Ellacombe, received their affiliation with the ABA last week – just in time for the Bodmin show.
First in the ring was Warberry School pupil Emily Watt (age 10) who put in a great performance against Bodmin ABC's Jessica Dorson in a skills bout, despite giving away age and weight to the Bodmin girl.
Next up was older brother Charlie Watt who got HOD ABC's first win with a majority deciion against Bodmin's Owen Gower.

Jake Madelin was next up for Heart of Devon with a strong performance in the early rounds but failed to build on the promising earlier part of the bout and resulting in getting on the wrong end of judges cards.
Finishing off the promising first evening for the club was 19-year-old female novice boxer Jo Hollingworth who went out with all guns blazing against the 26-year-old Jenny Elwood.
