LAWAL LOOKS GOOD

De­vel­op­ment box­ers im­press early on in cham­pi­onships

Boxing News - - AMATEURS - Daniel Her­bert

SHERIFDEEN LAWAL of St Pan­cras im­pressed beat­ing Stone­bridge south­paw Jor­dan Pe­dro in the Lon­don quar­ter-fi­nals of the De­vel­op­ment cham­pi­onships at Tot­ten­ham Com­mu­nity Sports Cen­tre.

Lawal at­tacked through­out this Class B mid­dleweight bout and piled up points with his right hand, al­though cu­ri­ously his win was only via ma­jor­ity de­ci­sion.

In the same class and at the same weight, West Ham’s Deniss

Dag­ilis elim­i­nated Al­bie Warner (Rep­ton) on a split that was en­tirely un­der­stand­able, given how well con­tested this gru­elling af­fair was. A warn­ing for hold­ing in round two didn’t help Warner’s cause.

A whop­ping 17-strong en­try at wel­ter­weight in Class A (un­der 10 bouts) meant quite a few box­ers had to per­form at the same venue on the Fri­day night (Septem­ber 21) then box again the fol­low­ing af­ter­noon. One such, Fight For Peace’s Dy­lan Oke [in­set], was too good for tall Ger­ald Din­negan (Left Hook), blood­y­ing his nose in the first and giv­ing him a count from a left hook in the last en route to a unan­i­mous vic­tory.

In a Class A 69 kgs last 16 bout, Rep­ton south­paw Eli­jah Ineg­benebho made good use of his long arms to out­box Kyle Joseph-pae­vie (New City) and drop him for a win that was clearer than the of­fi­cial 4-1 split.

Ash­ley Simp­son from the Haringey club next door fin­ished strongly to edge Isaac Ade­lakun (New City) in a close Class A su­per­heavy bat­tle. RE­SULTS
