Boxing upstart Cody Moore pulled no punches at his debut fight at Nambucca Heads on the weekend, after the welterweight boxer won his match through unanimous decision.

“Cody won every round of the boxing match,” coach Danny Cheetham said.

After a rocky, and nervous start against his opponent from Woolgoolga, Moore slowly picked up confidence in the first round.

“He started to push his opponent back. He was scoring with good straight punches. Towards the end of the round, he landed a big right hand on his opponent’s forehead, which opened a cut above his left eye,” Cheetham said.

The doctor on hand quickly inspected the laceration, but brushed it aside and the fight rolled into the second round.

“As a coach I was very concerned that the fight might have been called off after the first round. I took Cody to Nambucca to build his match fitness,” Cheetham said.


Cody dominated the remaining two rounds and made contact against his opponent with many successful combinations.

“He got in some good left, right, left hooks. He forced his opponent back onto the ropes on many occasions, with straight long arm punches,” Cheetham said.

Brent Munro and Connor Williams were also lined up to make their debut on Saturday night, however a last minute withdrawal from their opponents meant the pair missed out on their fights.

“Williams’ opponent from Grafton pulled out due to an injury. It was very disappointing, because Williams was keen to get in the ring and box,” Cheetham said.

Moore, Munro, Williams and Zac Crouch will head to Coffs Harbour on September 29.

“I took Zac along to the fight at Nambucca Heads, so he could soak in the atmosphere,” Cheetham said.

“We showed him the dressing room and what goes on during the night, to give him a good picture in his mind about what to expect at his debut fight at Coffs Harbour.”
