REPTON middleweight Michael Norgrove clinched the Bethnal Green club's 4-2 win over Midlands opposition with a two-round triumph over Aneric Horic at Solihull on Friday night.

Norgrove, who has shown promising form in Repton colours, took control in the opening round and shook his rival with solid hooks.

More pressure in the second session saw the Midlander rocked again, prompting the referee to step in and call a halt.

Luca Cutrupi also secured success for Repton and was good value for a points win over Midland rival John Kelly.

Also winning for Repton were Mo Ishad, who punched out a points victory over Rusim Macmadov, while Nadar Seebar outscored Romy Khunti.

Phil Bowles slipped to a points defeat against Zaheer Asghar and junior Josh Annelle finished on the wrong end of a tight verdict against Art Alom.

l George O'Mahoney and Connor Packman, the two Repton boxers in action at the last 16 of the junior novice finals in Stevenage, both chalked up convincing victories against Home Counties champions.

O'Mahoney took early control against Chris Haines, from Thames Valley, taking all three rounds on his way to victory.

Packman also dominated the action against Lewsey boxing club rival Matt Eisa, building up a clear points advantage on his way to victory and a quarter-final place.

Local amateur hopefuls will be launching their bids for glory at the national novices championships on Saturday afternoon at the Five Star club in Harold Hill, Romford.

Boxing is due to start at 1pm alongside junior supporting bouts.
