PUBLISHED: 17:00 15 March 2018
Islington’s Roxanne Fraser won the London Junior Cadet title (u50kg) on Saturday.
Fraser beat Harrow’s Diamond Scarlett in a rematch from a recent Lion ABC show, having also won that bout.
And she now goes on to the National semi-finals in Rotherham on March 24, with the finals the following day.
Clubmate Slavisa Gegic continued his winning streak by defeating Dennis Klotchko of Israel on a 4-1 split decision on the St Pancras ABC show at the Camden Irish Centre.
Gegic took the contest at short notice but began well, only for Klotchko to come back in the second round.
A strong final round proved decisive for the Islington boxer as he claimed victory.
However, Mihai Adrian Zfavarogea (69kg) lost a unanimous decision on the samee show to Ahmed Shitwiti.
Despite a significant weight advantage, the Islington man tried too hard to land big punches and was outworked.
