Broad Street boxing club celebrated a successful dinner show as brothers Rob and Charlie Russell chalked up a win double for the Stepney club at Canary Wharf


BROAD STREET boxing club celebrated a successful dinner show as brothers Rob and Charlie Russell chalked up a win double for the Stepney club at Canary Wharf on Friday night.

The talented duo made their mark in a pair of high-quality contests with rivals from Repton, highlighted by Rob Russell's points victory over Tim Lodhi.

Russell conceded weight against his Repton opponent but produced a series of accurate punches to edge the opening rounds.

Lodhi made a bold effort to turn the contest his way as the fight wore on, but it was the Broad Street boxer who took a deserved decision from the judges, earning a trophy as the night's top boxer.

Brother Charlie Russell and Repton rival Michael Tapper produced another high-quality duel, with the Broad Street hope forcing a standing count in the second round.

Tapper recovered well and engaged in some fierce exchanges before the final bell but Russell held on to record a points victory.

Dean Watson was also a winner in Broad Street colours as he ended the winning run of Fisher rival Joe McCrory, while the Stepney club's heavyweight hope Tuma Oraedu clinched a win over Invicta club opponent Terry Barrett.

Ryan Fox and Dele Williams featured in tight scraps with Peacock's Danny Maloney and Lion club's Ian Stacey respectively, but the Broad Street pair both dropped tight decisions.

Four Repton boxers booked their places in the national novice finals with good wins against Western Counties champions in Bristol on Sunday.

Mike Norgrove continued his bright form in club colours this year as he dominated the clash against Chris Leadbetter (Penhill) to win the Class A Under-75kg clash by a 9-3 margin.

Gavin Curragh was another Class A winner for the Bethnal Green club as he overcame Eddie Bradbury, from Bodmin, in a close Under-69kg clash.

Joe Knighton and Rees Shagourie completed a quartet of Repton wins with Class B victories over Forest Oak's Matt Freeman and Oakmead rival Steve Hammerston respectively.

Lansbury prospect Asa Vasillo produced an impressive display to secure a unanimous points verdict against Ray Lower, from Snodland, on a Lynn club show at Bermondsey on Saturday.
