Kenny Coney lost to Jamie Hall (White Hart Lane) on unanimous points decision, while Mackenzie Kempton lost a split decision to Felix Doran (Banbury).

But Bailey Wallace beat Lola Hannant (Kent Gloves) on a split decision, before Sam Courage lost to Sam Mason (White Hart Lane) on unanimous points and Darren Mulcahy was edged out by Zakhir Makhani (Uni of Herts ABC) on a split decision.

George Landers beat ex-Dagger Thomas Gailbraith (West Ham) on a split decision after a very entertaining and closely fought contest between former sparring partners, to claim the best home boxer award.

And Tamas Gerics beat Sloan Sifflet (Uni of Herts ABC) on a unanimous decision on his debut, while Jonathan Camilleri used his height and reach well to beat George Nocks (Uni of Herts ABC) by the same margin.

Zain Sattar was stopped in the second round by Fairbairn’s Abubaker Akbari, after receiving a standing eight count, while Philip Owusu lost to Ed Dragisic (Holland Shore ABC) on unanimous points after a tough, closely fought contest.

And Daggers schoolboy Tate O’Sullivan competed in his third skills bout on Sunday, in a rematch with Blue Richardson (Brentwood ABC) on the Brentwood club’s evening of boxing at Writtle Sports & Social Club, Chelmsford.

The pair had a memorable meeting in October at the Daggers Boxing Show and again gave another exciting, determined and skillful exhibition of amateur boxing.
