February 23rd 2006 Police Senior light welterweight boxer Danny Potter kept to his winning ways by out pointing Bredbury & Stockport's, S. Ramwell at Penketh Conservative Club on Thursday 23rd February 2006. Ramwell was a very strong small stocky fighter who took the fight to Potter. But Potter used his reach advantage and kept Ramwell on the end of his jab. Danny used the ring well not getting drawn into a toe-to-toe fight which would have suited his opponent better. Potter kept composed and took a comfortable clear points victory.
On the same bill schoolboy boxer Danny Craven boxed very well taking the contest to his opponent Wade Barrick of Newbury & Farnworth club. Barrick put up a good fight but could not keep up with the constant pressure from young Craven bombarding Barrick with head and body shots earning Danny a well deserved win. Danny is Bridgefoot ABC's newest fighter to get medicated and has worked very hard and shown a lot of dedication in such a short time. Good lad Danny, keep up the hard work!!
