Zelley's Round:
"Amateur Boxing News": By Brian Zelley, the "Sportcaster" - December 22, 1982

The newly formed LADYSMITH BOXING CLUB added to the growth of amateur boxing on Vancouver Island
by hosting an 11-bout card at the Ladysmith Sportsplex on Saturday December 11th before
an enthusiastic crowd.

The boxing club was formed in October through the efforts of BILL COX, DAVE ALTON who are the club coaches
and RICK BROUGH (ring official and recreational director for the town of Ladysmith) and Dave Stone.

Through the coaching efforts of Alton and Cox, and the administrative experience of Brough,
the club was able to host a club show after only two months of activity. Vancouver Island Clubs
were well represented with teams from Ladysmith, Nanaimo, Crofton and Parksville.

Ring officials included Rick Brough, Howard Curling, Brian Zelley, Frank Bowers and Joe Preston.
Mike Sartori, a coach from Victoria Jaycees, announced at a special meeting following the bouts
that the Victoria club is in the process of organizing regular Sunday afternoon shows on amonthly basis.
It was also announced that the Crofton Boxing Club will host a show in February while the Ladysmith
club will host another show in March.

Val Worden over Greg Pierce, Danny Cross over Daryl Hickey, Louis Leach over Tony Willis,
Craig Shaw over Scott Nugent, Alex Johnny over Hank Sampson, Danny Koughan over Wade Stewart,
Wayne Doherty over Mike Rochon, Dean Bohn over Steven Schwan, Jamie Rose over Jerome Crocker,
Pete Seggie over Rick Walton.

In the main event, SCOTT CESSFORD of Parksville used a combination of hand speed and foot speed
to win a split decision over the harder punching LLOYD ANDERSON of Nanaimo in a lightweight
