Queensbury Boxing League - Roswell displays talent in debut win

Joe Roswell took on the experienced Danny Newth over three rounds on the 'True Grit' bill. 

Right from the off Roswell showcased a solid jab and looked comfortable on the backfoot as the Golden Gloves boxer landed a good left-hook on the inside grazing the chin of Newth before the 17 year-old landed an uppercut-hook combination to end the first round. 

In the second round Roswell landed a quick one-two combination before catching his opponent with a big left-hook but Newth stood up to the shot. 

Roswell ended the bout strong as he whipped in uppercut up close but just missed with hook. The teenager was awarded the unanimous decision. 

After the bout Roswell's trainer Sam Holloway revealed he was happy with his boxers performance and explained the importance of Roswell returning to action having had two years out the ring. 

Holloway said: “I’m really happy Joe shook off a bit off ring rust there he’s been out the ring over two years so to get that first one out the way and to box the way he did was great. 

“He was keeping his shape a little bit more in the second and third and judging the distance better so I’m happy, he’s a young lad he’s only 17 so the quicker we get him out the better. 

“There’s loads more to come, that was nowhere near his full potential, he can go all the way to the top without a shadow of a doubt.” 

After the bout Roswell warned all QBL titleist he is eyeing championship showdowns along the line. 

“I loved every minute of the fight and to be back in there is great, I’m back now and I’m ready to take anything off anyone. 

“Win is what we come for and a win is what we take, we never lose, I’m coming for the titles now so anyone with a title that’s mine now.” 

Also on for Sam Holloway representing his Ramsgate gym was Light-middleweight Charlie Connell was on the receiving end to a split-decision loss to Napthali Lambert. 

Connell recovered well from being caught with a big left-hook in round one and applied pressure throughout the remainder of the fight, but the decision went against the 22 year-old. 

“Fair enough I think Charlie lost the first round but for me he won the second round and the third, one judge didn’t even give Charlie a round and that’s mad,” Holloway said. 

“He got caught with a solid shot in the first and he came straight back and put him straight back putting him under pressure for the next two rounds. 

“He’s only a young fighter he’ll come straight back, it was only his second or third fight he’s come on loads since he’s been with us.” 

Also on the card was super-bantamweight Anna Beck, who suffered a unanimous decision loss to Josie Carter.
