Lewis keeps winning

DANIEL Lewis kept his Australian title preparation on track with decisive wins at the fight night at Richmond Greyhound Racing Club last weekend.

Lewis won both his fights convincingly as he prepares for the Australian Titles in Perth, starting on April 7.

He disposed of Trent Allen on Saturday after his corner threw in the towel realising their fighter was copping a beating and couldn’t come back to win.

“He was outgunned. Daniel had too much firepower and he was hitting him with body shots and coming over the top with hooks,” trainer and father Jason Lewis said.

“He took a few eight counts, but didn’t give up.”

In the final on Sunday afternoon, Lewis came up against Jay Taylor who turned out to be a very different opponent.

“He was tall and hanging on to Daniel a lot. It was a scrappy fight,” Jason said.

Despite the difference in style, it was another win for Lewis, won by unanimous point decision. 

Organiser Jason Lewis applauded the big crowd which turned out to see not only his son but other local fighters including Reece Parish and Joel Mott, who unfortunately lost points decisions in their respective bouts. 

James Whitton also fought an exhibition bout as he looks to progress his career.

“It was a good night and a lot of people turned up to provide their support,” Lewis said. Another fight night will come to the Hawkesbury on March 22, which will also be a fundraiser for Lewis as he heads to Perth seeking national glory.
