The 16-year-old defeated Ayton, from Centurion ABC, on a unanimous points decision in their pre-quarter-final Class A Under-60kg contest at Earlsfield.

Both boxers were happy to occupy the centre of the ring and trade blows, but it was Isaacs who forced his opponent back on the ropes with a series of body punches.

In the second round, Isaacs unleashed a barrage of hard left and right hooks to both head and body, and maintained his superiority through to the final bell.

The Lion boxer now faces Southern Counties champion Lee Miles from St Mary’s ABC, Chatham, in Sunday’s quarter-final at Harlow Greyhound Stadium.

n Lion ABC’s national novices champion Zac Farrugia heads the bill at the club’s open show on Friday in Pitfield Street, Hoxton.

London Schools’ champion Krishan Singh is also in action, along with Billy Underwood, Frankie Arnold and Frankie Farmer.

Boxing starts at 7.30pm, with tickets available at £10 (adults) and £5 (under-15s).

Haithem Laamouz will not be featuring as he is included in the London North East team to face Danish opposition in Copenhagen this weekend, alongside Lion coach Julian Borg.
