Homecoming show for boxing twins

CRYMYCH boxing twins Ioan and Garan Croft are looking forward to a special homecoming as Cardigan ABC stage their second show at Crymych Leisure Centre on Friday (Jan 27).

The 15-year-olds, who in the past few months have boxed all over Britain as well as in parts of Europe, will have the rare novelty of competing at a venue just five minutes away from home.

The Crymych show forms part of the twins’ build-up to this year’s Three Nations tournament where they are aiming to win gold medals – and both face formidable opponents from Darlington.

Southpaw Ioan boxes Josh Bebb (Ward Degnans ABC) who has won around 27 of his 39 contests, while Garan meets Robert Towers, also of Ward Degnans, who has won 16 out of 26.

Other Cardigan boxers with confirmed bouts include Mikey O’Sullivan, Adam Lawrence, and Kaya Evans-Knight.

A team of five Durham boxers and three from Doncaster make up the 12- bout card.

An eagerly-anticipated contest sees Joe Morgan (Mountain Ash) take on Doncaster’s Levi Smith in what will be a clash between two come-forward boxers.

There will be a pig roast and bar as well as a raffle at the half-time interval.
