Gavan Hornery, Sam Williams, Richard Stewart Win Medals

Smithy’s Gym claimed three medals at the South East Queensland Amateur boxing titles over the weekend with Gavan Hornery and Sam Williams claiming silver while Richard Stewart won Gold in his division.

With no fighters in either boxer’s division, both Gavan Hornery and Sam Williams made the decision to step up a division to gain a fight. In a close points decision Hornery was defeated by Shamrock Boxing Gym’s Seb Ortiz. It was a big effort from 14 year old Gav who showed a lot of heart against his more experienced opponent falling just short.

Sam Williams who also stepped up in weight lost to the very experienced and multi state title winner Miles Zalewski from Caboolture. Williams was attempting to square the ledger after being defeated by Zalewski 12 months ago however it was to no avail.

Richard Stewart claimed Gold in his division in impressive style by stopping his Kingaroy opponent Pope Gabbert in the second round becoming South East Queensland Champion in just his second fight.

“It was a great effort from all fighters who pulled up well and are keen to get back in the gym and start work for their next fights” said Smithy’s Gym trainer Bert Hornery who travelled with the fighters.

Also in action from Smithy’s Gym was female amateur boxer Bec Laurie who under the guidance of another Smithy’s Gym trainer Brandon Wood, travelled to Wollongong NSW.

The bout which was originally set to be the main female fight of the night, became an exhibition spar after the NSW boxing commission wouldn’t allow the fight due to circumstances beyond their control. Although disappointed in this decision Brandon Wood said that Bec boxed very well and believes had it been an actual fight, she would have won convincingly.
