Barking Boxing Club saw five of their youngsters impress on their show at East Ham Working Men’s Club last Friday.

Three young boxers had skills bouts, with Rojs Dinsberg, Mohammed Isayev and Luca Veras all fighting well on the night.

And the club also saw two other youngsters celebrate wins, with Chris Berry earning a deserved unanimous points victory over D Edwards from the Gator club, following a hard battle.

Debutant Luan Veras also had a unanimous points win over C Fortain from the Waltham Forest club, after a fast and furious fight.

A club spokesperson said: “It was a great night of boxing. The young boxers all fought well on the night.

“The night was a great success and a high turnout of support for the club and its young boxers.”
