  • 2014-LCCM

Colchester boxers Cameron Matthews and Louis Curtis were in action at the weekend boxing on the Essex University ABC show at the Arena Colchester. Cameron faced-off in a local derby against Essex Uni boxer Jimmy Martin and Louis faced his cousin and old foe Stevie Martin of Harwich ABC.


First through the ropes was Louis who lost his last bout against Stevie martin by the closest of margins. With this in mind Louis started at a fast pace taking the bout to Martin with determined combination punching. Martin boxed cleverly however moving around the ring and catching Louis with his southpaw jab as he advanced.


Nothing could separate the two as the second round started. Louis kept up the same forceful pressure and this time was met by a slightly more determined Martin. The crowd were delighted as both boxers battled hard to try and secure the win.


The final round followed the same pattern as both boxers gave it their all meeting in the centre of the ring for sustained two handed exchanges. The crowd showed their support of both boxers determination as they broke out chanting each boxers’ name. A deserved but close points decision was awarded to Martin just after the master of ceremonies congratulated both boxers on the quality of the contest.


Next up for Colchester was Cameron as he faced older cousin Jimmy Martin, Cameron started positive throwing long punches as he moved In and out of range. Martin tried to box on the back foot but found it hard to settle as Cameron forced the pace of the bout.


Experience told throughout the rest of the bout as Cameron built on the good performance in the first round. Martin wasn’t allowed to settle as Cameron help the centre of the ring and backed his opponent up with sustained combination punching. Martin stayed competitive until the final bell trying to box at range and land occasional heavy shots but the judges were swayed by the high work rate and eye catching shots landed by Cameron. A convincing unanimous points decision was awarded to the Colchester boxer.

  • 2014-Lion

Colchester Amateur Boxing Club boxer Cameron Matthews quite literally entered the Lion’s Den when he boxed Bradley Messer of Lion ABC London. The bout took place in the Lion ABC gym, appropriately named the Lion’s Den.


Despite giving age away to the home boxer Cameron started the bout with intention and threw long combination punches pushing Messer onto the back-foot. The fast jabbing Messer tried to take the initiative on numerous occasions, leading with the double jab; he was met with fierce resistance however as Cameron landed two and three punch combinations with accuracy.


The second round was a more tentative affair for Cameron as he tied to box on the back foot and score with single shots. Spurred on by his opponents’ lack of work Messer stepped up his game and began to force Cameron back to the ropes and into the corners. Cameron kept the bout competitive with slick boxing but Messer had made it all to fight for in the third.


With one round to go both boxers knew that winning the final round was vital and both started with gusto. Messer initiated most exchanges but Cameron’s accurate power-punching was eye catching almost forcing the referee to issue a recovery count to the home boxer. Messer pressed Cameron right up to the final bell but the Colchester boxer had done enough. The judges awarded Cameron the bout on a majority point win in what has proven to be one of his best performances to date. Cameron and club-mate Louis Curtis with both be in action on Saturday afternoon 22nd Feb in Colchester at the Essex University ABC show at the Arena Gymnasium.

Boxing is not just for the boys! Colchester Amateur Boxing Club has always been looking to break new grounds and we have seen in the past Niamh Barton come through and represent the club with flying colours becoming the first female boxer in our history to box for the club.

Well we have more female boxers coming training now and we are hoping one of them will soon be following in the footsteps of Niamh and climbing through the ropes in the Black and Gold of CABC!!

Watch this space!
