Teresa goes for back-to-back wins for Rose City

BOXING: Teresa Poole has the chance to make it two wins in eight days when she lines up for the Rose City Boxing Club at Nerang this weekend.

Dubbed the Punching Princess by team-mates, Poole, 15, is back after a break from the sport and scored a unanimous points table at the Beaudesert tournament last weekend.

She was a convincing win in three rounds and will be at the Nerang PCYC with five fellow Rose City members this weekend.

Head trainer Damien Lawler said Poole fought brilliantly at Beaudesert.

“She has a great technique and a great future in the sport,” he said.

“Teresa has just turned 15 and is a student at the Warwick State High School. She is training really hard.”

She will have plenty of friends from the Rose City Boxing Club at Nerang at the weekend.

Jacob Wyllie, Lachlan Roche, Jake Speed and Jacko McMahon will also be competing at Nerang.

Last weekend at Beaudesert, Craig Windle (81kg) and Charlie Sweetman (70kg) both lost in close points decisions and Wyllie went well in an exhibition bout.
