Stevenage teenage boxing prospect Luke Gray made an impressive debut in the prestigious senior ABA championships.

The 18-year-old was pitted against the formidable Mark Macaulay, a 25-year-old from Chalfont ABC.

It was non-stop in an action packed bout of four two-minute rounds.

Macaulay tried hard to break Gray's tight guard but a classy performance kept the Stevenage lad ahead.

With sharp counter punching and excellent combinations, Gray's resilience paid off and saw him win on a points decision.

He will not have time to rest on his laurels as he travels to Thame this weekend for the Home Counties finals.

# Another boxer from the North Herts ABC has made his debut.

Elliott Sharp won against a tall and difficult southpaw boxer in his first official bout on Friday night at the All Stars club in Paddington, London.
