Duo make successful venture to Norfolk

Islington Boxing Club duo Mo Gharib and Byron Cox made their trip to Norfolk worthwhile as they returned to north London with wins to their name.

The pair were fighting on the Attleborough ABC dinner show, which was held at Wymondham Rugby Club.

Gharib, who fights in the 61kg division, was first up against Henri Potter of Kingfisher in a three-round contest.

Despite Potter starting brightly, Gharib was able to take control of the first round as it wore on.

The Islington fighter, nicknamed ‘Dangerous Mo’, continued to dominate in the second and third rounds before taking a unanimous decision.

Cox, fighting at 58kg, was taking part in his second senior contest and took on Carl Bevan from host club Attleborough.

From start to finish, Cox was in complete control of the bout and knocked Bevan down in the second round on his way to a unanimous decision, capping a successful night for Islington BC.
