Hastings club punches its weight in Bristol
West Hill Boxing Club had two semi-finalists and a finalist at the Bristol Box Cup last weekend.
Lee Bartley (birth year 2006, 41.5 kilos) boxed very well to achieve his maiden victory by a unanimous points decision in his semi-final against Billy Dyfield (Priory Park) on Saturday.
He went on to the final the following day and this time lost by a unanimous decision, albeit a close one, against John Nash (New Bays).
