Boxing In Britain: Impact ABC Going For Broke This Week

Impact ABC Coach Andrew Sedgemore is hoping for a double triumph from his stable this week, as two of his young guns compete for glory in the Staffs and Midlands categories.

“It is great for the area and for the gym, that Liam and Matt both have the possibility of representing the Midlands," he said.

"It's a good confidence booster for them and us as trainers, but they must stay focussed and continue their good work”.

Meir Park youngster Liam Berrisford will be part of a Midlands squad that will compete against a North West select team in Chesterfield on Saturday at Junior Novice Class A Level.

After a unanimous decision victory over Grimsby's Joshua Hyldon two weeks ago, his coach is adamant that Berrisford can be make an impression on the junior amateur scene.

“He showed a great range of skills against Hyldon, a good jab and some great combinations," Sedgemore commented.

"It is very hard to get unanimous decisions in the Amateur circuit sometimes, we have high hopes for him”.

Unbeaten Senior Matt Burkes has a tough task, as he looks to make the Midlands squad for the senior competition a couple of weeks when he competes at Stafford Town ABC's event on Friday.

“Matt hasn't had many fights so far, but he is a busy and fast fighter who can mix it up," Sedgemore said.

"We have only been running for around 18 months, so this a major step to have our lads looking to compete at Regional level.”
