OSWEGO, NY – Sidney LeCeur keeps pounding away on the competition.
The Oswego Boxing Club member won by knockout in the second round on January 23 in Watertown at the “Showdown in Snowtown.”
The show was put on by Johnny Pepe.
There were a total of 10 matches.
Roughly 30 Oswego residents came to support LeCeur.
OBC is next scheduled to compete on February 21 in Syracuse.
“I would like to thank Johnny Pepe for putting on a nice event in Watertown. It was a great location and very suitable for families to attend. We will be looking to host a similar event in the near future,” said Derrick Falcetti, co-owner of the Oswego Boxing Club.
Following the bout, LeCeur was asked how he felt about winning by way of knockout.
“I felt relieved. My opponent was a brawler. He had a wild style that was frustrating for me,” he replied. “In the end, it was clean and affective punching that won the bout.”
2015 is going to be a busy year, the local boxer added.
“I am going to train as hard as I can and compete as often as possible,” he said.
Derek Breitbeck, OBC co-owner, worked as the corner man.
“This is exciting for us. We will have a few more people competing and representing OBC at the next event,” he said.
