NEWHAM 15-year-old Jake Beer's bid for glory at the European Cadet
Championships in Plodvid, Bulgaria last week ended at the quarter-final
stage of the championships.

In the 50kg division, the Newham ABC prospect clashed with
high-standard Ukraine rival Ruslan Struk.

In a keenly-fought contest the Newham boxer (pictured) found the
target with some accurate punches at long range.

However, the strong Ukrainian fired back with his own scoring shots
and at the final bell was given a 16-7 points victory by the ringside
judges.

The Newham BC entry made an impressive debut on the international
scene when he clearly outscored Latvian rival Romtse Maxim in his
opening bout at the event, which has attracted outstanding youngsters
from all over the continent.

Newham clubmate George Veness was eliminated from the championships
by talented Armenian competitor Narek Abgary.

The Armenian finished with an 18-9 points' verdict on the official
scorecards.
