Rocky, western clubs put opponents on the canvas

ROCKHAMPTON Kalka Boxing Club's Bryce Boto is seeking out his next challenger after a strong win at the Rockhampton PCYC on Saturday night.

In the main senior bout of the night, Boto scored a unanimous points win over Blackwater PCYC fighter Steven O'Meara, returning for his first fight in about 12 years, in the 75kg division.

Kalka also found success on the 21-fight card with Joel Eliott landing a unanimous points win in his 63kg bout. Blackwater boxer Justin Serio was down but not out in his hard-fought split points loss to Mt Mee's Dale Barclay in their 67kg division.

In the three two-minute rounds Serio was sent crashing to the canvas in the opening round and had the count on him before getting back on his feet and narrowly missing the win.

Blackwater boxer Scott Galloway found winning form for the Blackwater club, the tournament's host club, with a win over Brisbane's Wesley Ryder in their 91kg bout.

Emerald's Scott Edwards was in the winners' circle after his 71kg division points win over Rockhampton's Karl Chopping, trained by Stephen Stewart.

Blackwater PCYC boxer Brodie Kuhn gave away 5kg in his points loss to Caloundra's Kurt Hansen in the 57kg bout while fellow club member Jonathan Dendle was outscored by Kingaroy's Adam Hatch in their 71km showdown.

Several of the Blackwater PCYC club members will next step into the ring in Caloundra on July 30.
