Terrific Tyrone well on top

TWO members of the Rhoose Amateur Boxing Club were in action at a show at the Ton Pentre Football Club.
Fourteen-year-old Tyrone Hayman, from Barry, fighting in the 42 kilo category, started well against local boy Kane Sibley (Rhondda ABC). Working well behind a solid jab, Tyrone moved his opponent around and followed up with good combinations to win all three rounds and the contest.
Tyrone takes the train journey from Barry to Rhoose four times a week for training, and a club spokesman said: "He is a very dedicated youngster and is one to watch for the future."
Also in action for Rhoose was 16-year-old Joe Fettah who, without taking anything away from opponent Nathan Howell (ANA ABC), was well below his best. A disappointing display brought defeat by one point and Joe will be looking to bounce back to form as soon as possible.
