BOXING: Judgement Day in Dorchester is a knockout show
7:00pm Friday 3rd January 2014 in Sport
A SELL-OUT crowd packed the Corn Exchange in Dorchester to enjoy a night of unlicensed boxing.
Despite a few hiccups along the way, promoter Sam Westall, who also fought and won, was happy with how the show went.
As well as being a platform for some of the county’s boxing talent, the event, billed as ‘Judgement Day’, also raised a considerable sum of money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The main bout between Bournemouth’s Jimmy Millar and Swanage’s Lewis Woods witnessed a knockout victory for the former, while some of Westall’s Dorchester protégés got to experience the atmosphere of a fight night on home soil.
David Salter and Jack Goswell lost out to James Lee and Joel Norris respectively, but Ben Goswell celebrated a fine win over Brendan Frost.
There were also successes for James Morgan, Daniel Lockwood, Andy Hayes and Ross Cook.
“All the bouts took place and there was a fantastic knockout in the main event,” said Westall. “There was a sell-out crowd and we raised a lot of money for charity.
“And I was happy with how my lads did. They all got in there and no-one got hurt, though there were a few bruises afterwards.”
