The first round was a scrappy affair with the referee forced to break up a number of clinches.

Riley found his range in the second round and was able to land a flurry of heavy punches to his opponent.

He continued the aggressive approach in the third round and it was enough for the judges to award him the win on points.

The win cements him as a strong prospect in the junior ranks in Queensland.

Riley scored a number of wins at the Queensland Novice Titles a few months ago and continues to impress his PCYC counterparts and trainers.

Lismore PCYC are a not for profit community organisation funded by membership, donations and grants.

PCYC Boxing has a long history as being one of the core activities since its establishment, along with Judo, gymnastics and kickboxing.
