Boxing News - - Amateurs - Daniel Her­bert

THE Lon­don De­vel­op­ment Championships con­cluded at the Com­mu­nity Sports Cen­tre and the Class B stan­dards were par­tic­u­larly en­cour­ag­ing.

Is­ling­ton had both 56kgs win­ners. In Class A By­ron

Cox buck­led Saleem Humza (West­side), with a right at the end of round one then stag­gered him with a left hook for a count, and the stop­page, late in round two.

In Class B south­paw Scott Smart out­worked club­mate Jiyan Oguz in qual­ity bout, al­though he was re­warded only with a split de­ci­sion.

An en­ter­tain­ing Class B 60 kgs af­fair saw Fisher’s Andres Manuel Lopez wear down Emmanuel Aly (Is­ling­ton), forc­ing two counts in the last for the towel to come in.

West­side had two win­ners, with Class A su­per-heavy Philip Toms crush­ing Deen Rose (Afe­wee) with a big right for a sec­ond-round KO, while Class B light-heavy Khara

Bal­raj dropped Aaron Nicely (Is­ling­ton) with a right in round one en route to a gru­elling split de­ci­sion.

Fair­bairn’s Joshua Gus­tave unan­i­mously outscored

Al­bie Warner in the Class B mid­dleweight fi­nal, but the Rep­ton boxer made him work for ev­ery point.
