The latest news from the local boxing scene

Cruiserweight Jose Lopes was happy to get back on the victory trail at York Hall when he scored a third-round stoppage success over Slovakian Milan Cechvala.

East Londoner Lopes had his ambitions rocked when he suffered a controversial stoppage against Ossie Jervier in Southern Area title clash in March.

He bounced back with his eighth win in nine outings, slamming a third-round success against the Slovakian.

Cruiserweight Mark Little was delighted to make it five wins in a row, stopping experienced Sheffield rival Darren Snow in two rounds at York Hall.

The prospect, trained by Dagenham coach Paul Cook, took early control of the clash, landing solid shots, before a powerful right to the body sent the Yorkshire fighter to the floor in the second round.

Snow climbed upright, but Little followed up with more solid shots and the referee signalled the end as the local fighter recorded his second York Hall win of 2017.
