Angel ABC featherweight Mark Kuderovitch turned the tables on old foe Ilyis Kulane (Fitzroy Lodge) with a revenge win at the Boston Dome, Tufnell Park.

Kulane had previously secured two points successes against his Angel rival, but Kuderovitch made amends this time by taking a unanimous decision to move his ring record on to four wins and three losses.

The Dalston-based boxer, who took the bout at short notice, always looked in command during the three two-minute rounds as he threw and landed a succession of quality punches to which Kulane had no response.

Kuderovitch, who is trained by Colin Lake and Ivor ‘The Engine’ Jones, said afterwards: “My improvement has been quite dramatic of late and I was confident that I could beat Kulane on this occasion.

“I am very fit now, I have learned from the previous mistakes I made against him and he had no answer to my work-rate and the volume of punches that I landed.

“He is still a useful opponent, but he met a totally different me on this occasion. It is always nice to beat someone who has ‘bested’ you before and I was very pleased with my night’s work.”

Angel heavyweight Darryl Scott made his debut on the same Finchley ABC show, but lost out on points to Gideon Antwi (Edmonton Eagles) in another lively three-rounder.

Antwi, who had won his only previous bout, was the busier fighter and threw a greater number of scoring shots to take a unanimous decision, although the Angel man stuck doggedly to his task until the final bell.
