PAUL Archer added another win to his flawless record as he defeated Matt Seawright over six rounds.

The 21-year-old, from Easington, was “gutted” to be matched against a journeyman after fellow unbeaten boxer Adam Kettleborough withdrew.

He told SportMail: “A win is a win. I can’t say much more than that.

“At this stage in my career I can’t do anything else than try to get better and fighting people like this really is teaching me the trade.

“I would like to take on more opponents with positive records but I have to be patient and wait for my chance. “

Archer sent Seawright to the canvas in the fifth with a stunning left hand that summed up his sharp performance.

“I enjoyed it and just tried to keep it as tidy as I could,” added the boxer who is trained at East Durham College by David Binns.

“I will be back in the gym and then working hard again to make sure I am in good shape for the next time a contest comes up.”


ROBERT Ismay was one of the representatives from Neil Fannan’s Brierton gym and he won in fine style.

The youngster took on Doncaster’s James Tucker and took a 40-36 point decision.

In a typical Ismay performance that saw him pushing forward and pressuring his opponent, Ismay was in complete control and was more than satisfied with his sixth professional win.

He said: “I’m happy with it but I will come back stronger.

“I controlled the fight and made sure it was tight all the time. It is something we have worked on.

“Hopefully there will be something soon I can be a part of and get another good result.”
