TALENTED Repton prospect Martin Ward will be bidding for glory at the AIBA World Youth Boxing Championships in Guadalajara, Mexico next week.

The classy Ward, who has a string of home titles and international honours on his record, is aiming to bolster his reputation against the world's best teenagers in the tournament.

The 17-year-old has already been hailed as a top prospect for the 2012 Olympic Games and travelled to Mexico last weekend for a training camp with his England team-mates before the competition gets underway.

l Damian Campbell Repton's ABA super heavyweight finalist has been called up for the European championships in Liverpool next month.

The boxer, who was defeated by Tyson Fury in the ABA finals earlier this year, is hoping for international success at the tournament which starts on November 6.

l George O'Mahoney sparkled as one of four Repton winners at the ABA London Junior Novice Finals at York Hall on Sunday after taking a title alongside club-mates Chris Ali, Lucien Reid and Connor Packman.

O'Mahoney was tested by classy Steve Tanner, from Honor Oak, in the Under-63kg section but took control in the final round, forcing his opponent to take two standing counts before being named a points winner.

Ali also applied late pressure to earn a points win over Cray Valley rival John Greenaway in the Under-50kg category, while Reid piled up the points in an impressive win over Under-44kg rival Steve Ellis, from Danson Youth.

Under-48kg prospect Packman picked his shots well to take the first and third rounds in a deserved triumph over Tottenham and Enfield opponent Andy McCormack.
