Moate boxer Joe Ward maintained his impressive run of form in the World Series of Boxing (WSB) by winning every round en route to a points victory over Croatian Marko Calic in London last night.
This was Ward's third win in three WSB contests and he has not yet lost a single round since joining the new format.
The WSB involves amateur boxers fighting without vests or headguards in bouts than are five, instead of three, rounds long.
Speaking after last night's win, at York Hall in Bethnal Green, the 19-year-old said it wasn't easy adapting to his opponent's awkward style.
"He was a very awkward opponent - a tall, rangy boxer. It was difficult. I didn't really perform to my best but I got the win at the end of the day which is all that matters," said Ward.
England's former world champion, and Olympic bronze medallist, Richie Woodhall was more positive in his assessment.
"It was a good performance from Joe Ward. He's showing that he has no trouble at all doing five rounds. It's his third contest in this competition and he's never really looked in trouble at all. I'm very impressed with him," said Woodhall.
Mullingar's John Joe Nevin also recorded a comfortable victory on the same bill, defeating French boxer Daouda Sow.
