Laura Weis won her first bout in Islington Boxing Club colours at the third time of asking with a win on the RAF Wittering show.

Unlucky to lose on the judges’ cards in her first two bouts, it was third time lucky for Weis, who competes at 53kg level.

The Islington fighter beat RAF rival Maddi Wilson by unanimous decision in a thrilling bout that was named the best of the night.

Roland Pink was also in action on the RAF Wittering show, but lost his 71kg bout against Bradley Axe by unanimous decision despite a brave showing in the ring.

Islington pair Ella Gilbert and Roxanne Fraser, meanwhile, finished as runners-up in their respective categories at the Bletchley ABC show.

Both Islington girls were defeated by home fighters via unanimous decisions despite some good strong displays.

Gilbert was defeated by Audrone Urbonaite-Melas, while Fraser was unfortunate to lose to Sadie Whiteland.
