OLLIE-LUKE Breen could be set for a rematch with Shane Selby after a valiant performance in defeat at Poole Amateur Boxing Club’s successful Knockout Tournament.
Every inch of floor space was taken up at Hamworthy Social Club with supporters, friends and family members ready to cheer the boxers on to victory.
Dorchester & District ABC fighter Breen didn’t make the best of starts against Selby, boxing out of the host club, when he took a sharp smack on the nose in the first round.
But Breen battled on, fighting with one hand on his nose and the other doing some amazing jab work to keep his rival at bay.
The second round saw Selby grow in confidence but Breen survived and came back after the bell, declaring to coach Ben Geyser: “I’m going to pull off something amazing in the final round.”
Nobody could argue with the judges’ decision to give the fight to Selby, however, Breen stunned the spectators with some significant shots in the last round.
Boxers and coaches were treated to a slap up meal afterwards courtesy of Poole ABC.
Breen was presented with a trophy for his efforts by Western Counties president Leo Toms.
