Fearnley brothers were some of the boxers to catch the eye on successful night under Mickey Helliet promotions

It proved to be a successful weekend for Lansbury Amateur Boxing Club with several fighters impressing at their annual show.

The Lansbury ABC show, which took place last Friday at the Grand Connaught Rooms, was sponsored by Berkeley Homes and promoted by Mickey Helliet.

The big dinner show was a huge success and all eight bouts provided an equal amount of drama and entertainment.

Several Lansbury boxers took part with twin brothers James and Johnny Fearnley impressing against St Paul’s fighters, who had came down from Hull.
