Parry hooks a top win

ON Saturday night up-and-coming Rose City boxer Shane Parry let the world know why he’s called “Hurricane”.

In just his fourth bout ever, the 17-year-old knocked his opponent Owen Howlett out in just the first round.

His coach and grandfather Roy Parry said Shane won the bout in less than 20 seconds.

“(Shane) unleashed a heavy-handed body attack then crashed a big right hand to the head and the contest was over,” he said.

Roy said professional Chris Fox also fought in the pro-am event at Chinchilla, but lost on points.

“Although beaten on points by Tim Kanofski (Fox) fought a hard give-and-take battle with Kanofski to lose a close-fought close decision to the Ipswich professional boxer,” he said.

Warwick professional boxer Terry Lambert also fought at Chinchilla and won his fight over Marlon Toby.

Coach Ray Lambert said Terry put Toby down in the first round of the super middleweight division bout.

“Terry put Toby down in the first round with a good body shot and kept the pressure on to finally stop Marlon in the fourth round,” he said.

“It was a good win for Terry in front of a very good crowd.”

The fight was set for six three-minute rounds. Terry is now back into training already for his next fight scheduled in May.

Terry and Fox have been practising and sparring together and Ray was assisted in the corner by Peter Wakefield and Damien Lawler.
