REPTON's four winners in the London Boys Clubs Class C finals at the Porter Tun Rooms underlined the club's domination of the annual championships, bringing their total to a round dozen Feds winners.

Taking the team trophy and the best boxer of the night award made it another Repton romp for the Bethnal Green brigade at the championships where they have dominated for so long.

The classy punching of Martin Ward subdued game West Ham rival Charlie Hoy and provided one of the outstanding performances of the tournament.

Ward put another win on his impressive record as he dominated the bout to make sure of the decision and it was no surprise when he was later named the best boxer of the night.

Michael McCarthy's clash with Marlon Mellish (Times) provided another highlight of the show with the pace rarely easing off all through a keenly fought contest.

McCarthy with his sights set on another national title to add to his collection showed the edge in skills to make sure of the verdict but he was pushed all the way by the determined Mellish, who worked well to head and body.

Also winning in Repton colours, Michael Channing took the honours against Lee Ramos (Dale Youth), scoring well at long range to take control of the early stages.

Although Ramos tried to turn the contest his way it was Channing increasing his advantage to make sure of his title success.

West Ham's national titleholder and England representative Danny Dignum, as expected, moved through at the expense of Repton's far less experienced Leon Wallace in their final duel.

Wallace, with just a dozen bouts behind him, showed ability but the talented West Ham boxer was good value for his latest title success.

Another West Ham v Repton clash was ruled out by the injury that forced the withdrawal of Mark Nugent, leaving Repton's Frank Buglioni the winner on a walkover.
