Portland Boxing Club boxers scored two RSC’s (technical knock-outs) in week one of the Northern New England Golden Gloves tournament in Somersworth, NH.
In his first fight, Portland Boxing Club’s Ilyas Bashir, a 141-pound youth light welterweight from Auburn, Maine, won by RSC over Jezreel Sims of Manchester, NH. Referee stopped competition at 1:14 into the third round. Bashir looked sharp throughout showing good boxing skills. His record is now 1-0.
Portland Boxing Club’s Wade Faria, a 165-pound novice middleweight from Portland, Maine, lost a 3-2 split decision that could have gone either way to Travis Campbell of Manchester, NH. This hard-fought fight was clearly the fan favorite of the night. Faria’s record is now 8-2 and has reached the maximum number of bouts for a novice; therefore, he will compete next week in the open class.
Portland Boxing Club’s Jordan Lindsay, a novice super heavyweight from Westbrook, Maine, won by RSC over Jassiah Francis of Manchester, NH. Referee stopped competition at 1:32 into the third round. Lindsay’s record is now 6-1. The referee gave Francis an 8-count in each of the three rounds before seeing enough and stopping the fight.
