Islington Boxing Club picked up two victories on an Eastgate ABC dinner show held at the Debenham Leisure Centre in Stowmarket.

First up was 14-year-old Joshua Strong (60kgs) who was keen on impressing once again after claiming two stoppages in a row prior to this contest against Kaleb Robertson-Howard of the host club.

Strong used his strength to put Robertson-Howard on the ropes before a flurry of right hands landed on the Eastgate boxer’s head, forcing the referee to administer a standing eight count.

Shortly afterwards another standing count saw the contest waved off just over a minute into the opening round.

Connor Daly (49kgs) was also on a roll with two victories in a row since joining Islington and the 17-year-old made it three with a unanimous decision against Michael Stevenson of Trumpington ABC.

It was enough for Daly to be named the ‘best overall boxer of the night’.

The weigh-in and draw for the London Elite Championships have taken place and 10 Islington boxers now know their fate.

Thursday night’s card at the Tottenham Sports Centre has six from the club in action:

Bout no: 1 - Inder Bassi vs Krishan Singh (Lion) - Pre 1/4 finals U69kgs.

Bout no: 2 - Yaser Al-Ghena vs Ross Boyle (Fisher) - Pre 1/4 finals U69kgs.

Bout no: 5 - Jerome Campbell vs Jack Brooker (Northolt) - 1/4 finals U60kgs.

Bout no: 6 - Mo Gharib vs Youssef Khoumari (IQ) - 1/4 finals U60kgs.

Bout no: 7 - Darren Ballinger vs Billy Bear (Repton) - 1/4 finals U60kgs.

Bout no: 11 - Troy Smart vs Louie Lynn (Nemesis) - Semi Finals U56kgs.

Two more are in action on Friday at the same venue:

Bout no: 2 - Lamin Conteh vs Romario Wallace (Repton) - 1/4 finals U69kgs.

Bout no: 8 - Chris Onwegbusi vs William Webber (Lion) - 1/4 finals U75kgs.

Amy Broadhurst (U60kgs), Cherrelle Brown (U64kgs) and top seed in the U60Kgs category, Mason Smith, have received byes to the national stages of the championships.
