Members of the Fernie Old School Boxing Club were celebrating after great performances at a competition in Vernon on the weekend.

Coach, referee and judge, Garth Rizzuto said all three of his boxers put in performances they should be proud of on Saturday.

In her first competitive fight, Taylor Randall beat Megan Fehr from the Salmon Arm Bulldogs in a 57 kg junior C fight. “Taylor was very composed and moved well,” said Rizzuto. “She did a great job.”

In a 69 kg senior fight, Mary Moore beat Eileen Connor from Olsons Boxing Club in Victoria, and in the fight of the night, Shane Weed narrowly lost to heavyweight champion of B.C. Ken Huber from Kamloops.

The 91 kg senior fight with Huber, who just returned from nationals, kept everyone cheering, especially Rizzuto.

“It was a really good test for Shane and he pushed him for a full three rounds. I’m really happy with him.

“I think this really opens up the door for our club, and we will be seeing a lot more activity.”

Rizzuto said all the boxers are looking forward to the next event, the Golden Gloves in Vernon on April 22.
