»Repton BC continued their long-term domination of the London boys’ clubs championships when eight would-be title takers chalked up impressive wins to advance in the tournament.

A trio of club hopes came through their London final tests at Harlow on Sunday where Billy Beer, Kwaky Sarpong and Jordan Blake overcame tough rivals.

Beer beat aggressive Daniel Barode (Fisher) after a lively Class A 57kg clash, which saw the Repton entry trading punches toe-to-toe in a lively opening round.

However, in the second, Beer relied on his superior skills to pile up the points and continued to box at long range to make sure of the points verdict. Sarpong beat Lewis Stanley (Dale Youth) in another keenly fought encounter, impressing in the opening round of their Class C 63.5kg final.

Stanley came more into the contest in the later rounds, but Sarpong retained his lead until the final bell to make sure of another Repton success.


Blake had too much firepower for Lynn BC rival Taofeek Maja, who needed the respite of a standing count from the referee in the opening minute of their Class C 67kg final.

Two more standing counts followed as the Repton boxer landed solid shots and the south London hope was rescued by the referee.

Completing the London title haul were the Bethnal Green club’s walkover winners – Jamie Branch, Harvey Horne, Sunny Edwards, Jordan Flynn and Reggie Turner.

The next stage of the tournament, the regional finals, will be staged in Harlow on Sunday, November 11.
