REPTON pair Lucien Reid and Chris Ali scored a fine double success to lift junior novice awards in the North East London divisional championships at the Five Star club in Harold Hill, Romford on Saturday.

The Bethnal Green club duo will now advance to the London ABA junior novice finals on Sunday alongside fellow Repton hopefuls George O'Mahoney, Josh Annelle and Connor Packman, who all earned walkover wins.

Reid, who was competing in the Under-44kg section, launched his title bid with a fine victory over Dagenham boxing club entry Kenny Harman and controlled the exchanges from the start.

The Repton boxer proved too classy for his willing opponent, who tried hard but could not match Reid's all-round ability as the teenager earned a unanimous decision.

Under-50kg division entry Ali could also make his mark in the finals of the tournament, which features novices with 10 bouts or fewer on their records.

Ali moved far too well for Fairbairn rival Adam Patel and piled up the points on his way to a clear victory.

But there was an upset for Repton's Under-70kg title favourite Ollie Williams, who was outpointed by East Ham rival Noel Maloney.

Maloney, from Bow, proved too strong for the Repton fighter and swept to victory as the skilful Williams was taken out of his stride on his way to dropping a unanimous decision.

Obie Coates put another win on his record for Repton when he travelled to the Finchley boxing club show at the Boston Arms in Tufnell Park last week.

Coates faced strong Finchley boxer Mike Smith, but the class of the Repton boxer shone through as Coates produced some eye-catching shots to clinch a clear points win.
