Revelstoke boxers win Vernon bouts

This past Saturday, Mar. 12, Revelstoke Amateur Boxing members Conner Null, 15, and Mitch Demone, 17, both competed in A Night of Amateur Boxing hosted by the Counter Punch Boxing Club in Vernon, B.C.

Conner Null (Fraser) boxed Isaiah Holt from the Peachland Boxing Club. Even though Conner’s opponent had more experience, Conner was the aggressor and had the better skills. After Conner’s opponent received two eight counts in the third round, the referee had to stop the bout, giving Conner a unanimous decision win.

Mitch Demone boxed Alex Young of the Capital City Boxing Club in Victoria, B.C. Mitch came out strong in the first round and won it easily. Between the second and third round the fight turned into a slug fest and at the end of the fight the split decision went to Mitch.

Coach Sam LeRose noted that both boys worked hard throughout the last three weeks leading up to the fights. Both boxers deserved the wins.

“I am very proud of both boys,” he said. “Although the Revelstoke Boxing Club is small, we have very few losses compared to wins.”
