The latest news from the local boxing scene

Repton boxers scored their latest team triumph, recording a 5-2 win over Belfast Dockers at the Chiswell Street Brewery on Friday night.

The long time London against Belfast rivalry once again produced exciting action for the dinner show audience, with good displays from the Bethnal Green club seniors.

Heavyweight Arnold Obodai played his part in the home club success as he powered to a quick time triumph over Dockers’ Turley Gallacher.

A solid left hook, followed up by a battery of blows from the tall Obodai, rocked his rival, bringing a standing count from the referee and a towel signalling retirement from the Belfast corner.

Romario Wallace earned the fans’ applause as he poured on the punches in the second round and the solid shots shook Owen Duffy as the Repton boxer recorded another convincing success.

The determined attacks of Vilius Alisauskas set up another victory for the home boxers, slamming home the effective punches on his way to the verdict against Ben Teeling.

Matt Trotter and Irish rival Andy Esdale traded solid shots, but the home boxer stepped up the pace to make sure of the verdict in an entertaining clash.

Alston Ryan also continued the improved form he has shown in club colours, slamming fast-punching attacks to control his clash with Mike McLaughlin and come through a worthy winner.

There was disappointment for Chavez Campbell with the points in the balance against Noel Donnelly and a casting vote from the judges gave the visitors the victory.

The decision that went against Repton’s guest boxer from Sunderland Travis Walters in favour of Mike Bustered was hotly disputed by ringsiders after a fiercely-fought contest.

In supporting bout action there was a bright display from Repton’s Albi Warner outpointing Northolt rival Sirjan Kuma.

• Peacock amateurs are featured on the annual Open Air Tournament at the United Services Club, Barking on Saturday, with some promising heavyweight action on the bill that starts at 1pm.

• Lansbury boxer James Fearnley was beaten on a split vote by Finlay James in the England Schools’ quarter-finals, but clubmate Amo Khayer outscored Ken Tate (Swale) in Walthamstow.
