WILL Smith continued his perfect season intact with another fine performance when he faced the long journey to Congleton for the Beartown ABC show.

The Sandygate teenager was up against J Bettaney of Hulton Abbey ABC in a 3 x 2 minute round 65kg contest at Congleton Town Hall.

Smith, 15, used his height and superior reach to his advantage from the off, connecting well with power and precision.

The second was the Blessed Trinity Year 11 pupil’s finest, scoring with his rear hand work keeping his experienced foe onto the rear foot throughout and working in the clinches and phasing his attacks.

The third and final round left the judges in no doubt who would get the nod as Smith continued to score with his lead, double rear hand combo and it was to no surprise his arm was raised with a unanimous 3-0 decision and keep his unbeaten record in 2014 intact.
