Lyon marches on after big win

GYMPIE amateur boxers stood out at the Impact Boxing Academy’s fight night in Cooroy last month.

Of the boxers to take part, trainer Tony Young was happy with how his group of amateurs performed.

In action were Jordan Chapman, Sam Gallagher, Thomas Lyon and Mitch Selby.

But it was Thomas Lyon that had Young most excited.

Lyon, 14, won his first fight in the ring by way of a unanimous decision.

“Thomas did really well and I’m proud because he listened and did what was asked of him,” Young said.

Weighing 63 kilograms, Lyon transferred what he had been working on in the gym to the ring, to great effect.

Particularly devastating was his use of combinations, forcing his opponent to the ropes.
