Bluewater boxer picks up win in first match

Joshua Jablonsky of the Bluewater Boxing Club scored a third-round TKO victory in his amateur boxing debut on April 14.

The 16-year-old picked up the win at the St. Catharines Boxing Club’s 23rd annual Ray McGibbon Gloves event.

Jablonsky showed grit and tenacity by battling through a bloody nose to beat a determined opponent.

The referee called a halt to the contest midway through the third and final round.

The St. Patrick’s High School student is now back in training for the Ontario Bronze Gloves tournament, which will be held in Toronto in June.
