Brother Luca was making his boxing debut and had a hard fight against Cheshunt’s Harry Thompson, just losing out in a close verdict as former stars Herol Graham, Julius Francis and Derrick Williams looked on.
“Overall it was an exciting night of boxing and we were very happy with all the support from all clubs that attended,” said spokesman Kul Singh.
“The crowd was also great, cheering on our young boxers who produced a show to remember.”
