Boxing: Ryan Jones and Tyler Bryce win Midland titles

TWO Worcester City Amateur Boxing Club fighters were crowned Midland schoolboy champions.

Ryan Jones and Tyler Bryce proved their class and talent to be worthy winners.

Bryce was up against Joe Blundell, of Darlaston ABC, in a bout that at times was untidy.

Blundell received two warnings for ducking low and Bryce countered this with sharp, straight punches.

Fast combinations from the Worcester schoolboy in the second round saw the referee give Blundell a standing count.

A solid performance from Bryce saw him win all three rounds to claim a unanimous points decision.

Jones applied his strength to outpoint a game Billy Brannen, of Bulkington ABC.

The Worcester fighter was too strong throughout the contest, culminating in a standing count in the third.

His relentless, hard approach to boxing is giving plenty of trouble to whoever he faces.

The wins took the boys through to the national quarter-finals in Stoke.
