Three Repton boxers flew home on Tuesday from Kingston Jamaica after staking their claim to box for the Island at the Commonwealth Games later this year

Three Repton boxers flew home on Tuesday from Kingston Jamaica after staking their claim to box for the Island at the Commonwealth Games later this year.

Welterweights Phillip Bowes and Ahmet Patterson, along with middleweight Recce Shagourie came through trials in Kingston on Saturday night.

Bowes showed his improvement as he boxed his way to a convincing points victory over Shawn Wheatle of the Jamaica Defence Force in a three-round contest.

Patterson, came through a winner against highly-rated Ricardo Smith (Hard Knocks Gym).

Middleweight Shagourie also boxed his way to victory over Catoney Robinson, also of Hard Knocks Gym at the trials tournament held at the Barbican Beach Complex on Saturday.

After staking their claims for the Commonwealth selection they stayed for interviews on Jamaican TV and then flew back to London, hoping to line up with the entries out to continue Repton's rule at Friday's North East London Divisional championships.

The Bethnal Green club's official list of starters at Dukes Hall Hornchurch includes international duo Martin Ward at featherweight and Frank Buglioni looking for middleweight honours.

Repton line-up their dozen-plus list of entries, as the championships return to the compact Dukes Hall not the traditional venue York Hall.

There will be the usual withdrawals and weight changes before the first bell sounds but the tournament as always promises some entertaining contests

The weigh in takes place from 4-6pm with the boxing to start at 7pm.

Repton's world junior silver medallist Ryan Pickard made a winning return to action after a three-year break from boxing when he defeated Welsh rival Lee Goodman on the club show held at Woolston Manor Chigwell on Friday night.

Pickard proved too classy for Goodman as Repton swept to a one-sided win over a visiting Welsh lineup and took an easy points win.

He now looks set to join the club's powerful lineup chasing 2010 ABA title honours which gets underway at the Dukes Hall on Friday night.

Repton's Alwin Joned did not need the judges scoring for his victory as he slammed a battery of blows to send Welsh rival Matt Jones to a third round defeat.

Also hurrying to success, Mike Bedako defeated Zac Thomas who was rescued by the referee after suffering a shoulder injury in the second round.

Raymond Levy also proved too good for a Welsh opponent on the tournament when he outpointed Matt Saddmalmood from the Fight for Peace club while Sohil Ahmed (Repton) outscored Matt Pritchard.

In junior action there were good wins for the Bethnal Green club prospects including Oliver Hunt who outscored East Ham fighter Simon Tack and Noah Stanley, who outscored Hooks BC rival Dave McDonald.

Also winning against a Welsh rival from the St Jospeh's BC on the night, Repton's Levi Coates sparkled as he took the verdict against Steve Connor on the show.

Robert Beck continued his winning ways defeating Ray Garner (Southampton) while Jimmy Smith lost the verdict to Northolt fighter Tony Rhone after an extremely close clash,

Repton's super seven National schoolboys finalists will be put to the test by high-standard northern rivals at the Brentwood Centre this weekend.

The Baker boys, Frank and Johnny, plus Jimmy Smith, Obie Coates and James Branch bid for national honours on Saturday.

While Danny Arnold and Simon Baker carry the Repton hopes in their finals on Sunday afternoon at the same venue.

There was double success for boxers from Poplar's Lansbury BC when they made the trip to appear on Friday's Ramsgate BC tournament and turned back the challenges of the Kent club opponents.

Senior Sultan Ali chalked up a good win against home club rival Kenny Watson, piling up the points with an effective left jab to take the points verdict.

Ibrohim Turav was tested by Isle of Thanet club boxer Ray Leach who he put under pressure throughout the clash until the southpaw attacks of Turav brought another victory for the East London-based Lansbury club.
