FNCtitles test the best



The Far North Coast titles held at the Ballina RSL Club attracted not only high quality boxers from throughout New South Wales and southern Queensland, but also a huge crowd of boxing enthusiasts.

In the afternoon session, Jamie Morgan of Wyrallah won the gold medal in the cadet light heavyweight division.

He proved too good for his opponent, using his long straight jabs and right hand combinations to take a unanimous points decision.

Local boxers also competed for gold medals in the evening session.

Emmet Brown (Ballina) and James Roberts (Lismore) boxed brilliantly to take the cadet FNC lightweight and junior welterweight title respectively.

Light heavyweight Daniel Baff (Coffs Harbour) proved too strong for his Queensland opponent.

This fight showed he is in contention for a spot in the Australian team for the Commonwealth Games in Melbourne next year.

Copal Staples (Murwillumbah) retained his FNC featherweight belt in a hard contest against Cliff Copeland (Lismore).

These two boxers have been head to head twice previously for this title and both gave their all.

Cliff Copeland dug deep at the end but Staples had done enough work to win gold in the FNC featherweight title.

Australian team contenders Max Raglus (Wauchope) and Trent Fellows (Queensland) battled it out for the welterweight title.

With more than 130 bouts between them, the action was non-stop. In an even fight, the Queenslander won a majority points decision to a standing ovation.
