IN OTHER NEWS: The British Lionhearts made a triumphant first appearance in the North East with a thumping 5-0 victory over the Croatian Knights in the World Series of Boxing (WSB) on Friday night (16 February 2018).

Three boxers from the region, Kiaran MacDonald, Calum French and Pat MCormack delivered unanimous victories to delight the noisy, sell-out crowd at Gateshead Leisure Centre in a tremendous night of boxing for the North East.

A unanimous win for Ireland’s Joe Ward and a victory for Kiwi, Patrick Mailata, whose opponent was pulled-out after three rounds of the super-heavyweight contest, completed the rout as the Lionhearts overpowered the team from Croatia.

In the Lionhearts’ first home match of the new season, Sunderland ABC’s, Kiaran MacDonald began proceedings in a flyweight battle against Croatia’s overseas selection, David Alaverdian from Israel. 

In his first bout at flyweight (after recently moving up from light-flyweight) MacDonald boxed at range to consistently pick-off Alaverdian in the first three rounds.

And despite tiring in the fourth round, the Sunderland man had enough in the tank to come back strongly in the fifth and secure a unanimous win on all the judges’ scorecards to the delight of the home support.
