The 15-year-old Madalin Potop boxed at 56kg and defeated Lewis Donks of the famous Salisbury Boxing Club.

And delighted head coach Mark Collings said: "Madalin won a very good contest by unanimous decision."

In another bout, Leomar Marte - only 14 - won his second fight in two weeks when he beat Aiden Heskith at 71kg.

The Limehouse boxer won via split decision against the Derby Lane club fighter.

Collings added: "Both boys showed great skill and maturity to travel up to a great fight city like Liverpool and come back victories."

Louis Horn triumphed at the same show, defeating Javaun Bance at 60kg on a unanimous decision and he will be in Haringey Box Cup action this weekend.
