Despite losing his gumshield and being warned for holding, the Plymouth boxer did enough to take the unanimous win.
Defeats did not tell the full story for two Bideford ABC members in Saltash either.
Ryan Gumbley lost narrowly on points in a rematch with Jake Burnard, of Pilgrims ABC.
In a crowd-pleasing contest, both boys showed how much progress they have made since their original meeting at the Durrant House Hotel in Northam.
James Hewitt had his first bout against Sam Welch, of Launceston ABC, missing out on points despite a rousing last round.
Welch proved a handful with greater reach advantage but the Bideford boy stuck to his task on a promising debut.
Charlie Coysh, 10, also made a fine first appearance, in a skills bout against Mark Mead, from Bodmin ABC.
After a tentative opening from both lads, Coysh stepped up a gear to control the final two rounds.
