Boxing: There were bloody noses and hospital trips on the weekend as an impressive line-up of boxers came together for a night of action-packed entertainment.

Fighters travelled from interstate to challenge Caboolture boxers at the Spiders 4th annual Amateur Boxing Tournament.

Spiders Boxing Club president Kylie Burford said there was some good competition on the night.

"We haven't done our best,” Burford said.

"Alex Davies has just popped his shoulder and he is at hospital.

"We were trying to stop it, you could just see he was in pain.

"He was trying to get away from his opponent. It's a shame because he was winning too.

"He should be okay though.”

Burford said the club wasn't disappointed in the losses though.

"The night's more about having fun and everyone seems to be enjoying themselves,” she said.

"The tournament was a massive success due to all the boxers stepping up and fighting above their level to create a fantastic fight card,” she added.

The almost full-capacity crowd was full of energy as they watched the young boxers battle it out inside the ring.

Burford wanted to thank all the volunteers who helped out on the night.

"It takes a team to make a successful event and the Spiders committee worked well together to create such a fantastic atmosphere,” she said.

"The support we received from local business and organisations is all greatly appreciated.

"Without their support we could not put the event on.”
