Frank Buglioni featured in the top tussle of the night when Repton hosted a North-East squad for a dinner show at the Woolston Manor Country Club in Chigwell on Friday night.

Buglioni's clash with Sunderland's Matt Law was an all-action thriller with both boxers trading toe-to-toe punches in every round.

Yet the Repton boxer proved more determined to take the verdict in a fierce four-round contest that helped Repton secure a 6-3 team triumph.

Lightweight Mike McCarthy also chalked up a victory for the home squad after an improved display to outpoint Dave Thompson, while there were also good wins for the Channing boys.
