Boxer Carla Morgan faces champion Daryle Joblin on Catholic Club’s big show in Hartlepool


HARTLEPOOL Catholic Boxing Club’s show is set to be a “great night of boxing” according to head coach Paul Allen.

Friday’s event at the Owton Manor Social Club will feature Catholic Club’s Carla Morgan take on National Female champion Daryle Joblin.

Allen said: “It will definitely be 50-50 it’s going to be a really tough close contest.

“We’ve held Carla back until it was her time and we’re going to give it a go this time it’s going to be tough.”

Morgan was a finalist in the National Championships last year in London, the title which Joblin holds in a different weight division.

The Wynyard Road venue will feature 12 bouts in an action packed evening.

Allen said: “Every bout on the show is a big one. I am expecting it to be a sell out without a doubt.”

Seniors Amy Currell, Sam Lowery and Leon Egerton, as well as super-heavyweight Jamie Readman, are all in-line for a place on the action packed show.

Catholic Club hot prospect Bobby Carter is also set for a bout with Steven Hilton, of Spennymoor Boxing Academy.

Aaron Stevenson, who won on the Ward Degnan show in Darlington, is in line for a bout.

Jack Winspear could feature on the show after being unlucky was unlucky to lose with a cut eye in the Club’s last show in “a corker of a bout.”

Jack Emery, Owen Joblin, Jon Smith and Jake Oates are also all looking to appear.

Newly-crowned Tyne, Tees &Wear Junior ABA U44kilo champion, Callum Measor, will be in action against West Durham’s A Bowden.

The 16-year-old Catholic Club starlet received a bye in last weekend’s regional round at Houghton and will box in the national pre quarter-finals on Sunday at Sherburn Leisure Centre. Bowden lost on a split decision to Measor’s team-mate Morgan Murray in the TTW U48 kilo final so will be coming to the Owton Manor Club fired up to do well.

Allen said: “It should be a great night of boxing.

“It is the last one until the end of the season and it will be a good show just like in previous years, and full of top local talent.”

The show has already sold two-thirds of tickets for the show.

Allen added: “To pre-warn people in previous years the show has sold out before the night so anyone wanting tickets should get them early.”

Doors will open at 6.45pm and boxing getting under way at 8pm. Anyone who wanting to buy tickets should contact Paul Allen on 07976270424.
