Nathan crushes his opponent

ANOTHER classy performance by Nathan Young of Gilford ABC forced referee Ian McShane to halt the contest between Young and Aaron Treanor (Craigavon) at INF Lurgan last Friday night.

Nathan started the contest brightly slipping past his opponents jabs, then bringing his left hook in to play to dominate the first round.

In round two Treanor tried to put the Gilford boxer on the back foot, but walked straight on to a big right cross forcing a standing eight count.

Young could see an early finish was on the cards and was not letting his opponent of the hook, tramping him on the ropes and landing crushing blows that left the referee no choice but to stop the contest in favour of Gilford lad.
