Hooks hold annual event in memory of Luke Fitzpatrick
HOOKS ABC staged an open show at the Harrow Club near Grenfell Tower on October 27 - its fifth annual event named in honour of Luke Fitzpatrick, a youngster who died in tragic circumstances.
The Luke Fitzpatrick Trophy for Best Boxer went to Tony
O’donnell for his unanimous win over Ben Coates of Rumbles, while another Hooks junior in Brian
O’donnell – like Tony a national finalist – was pipped in a cracker.
Brian forced the pace throughout against Dilraj Singh-gozra, only for the West Ham boxer’s neat countering to earn him the narrowest of split decisions. Bout of the Night saw Hooks’ Obi
Egbunike [pictured] use fast hands and good movement to retain his Southern Area 75kgs belt with a hard-fought unanimous decision over Robbie Chapman (IQ).
