JOE TEMPLE, the talented Newham BC prospect, took the best boxer of the night award on his club's show at the East Ham WMC on Friday night.

Temple showed improved form to outpoint Connor Ireson, one of a group of boxers visiting from Leicester's Earl Shilton BC, at the tournament.

Another Newham prospect turning back the challenge of a visitor from the Leicester club, was Viddal Riley, who outpointed Brian Perkins.

Riley found the gaps in his rival's defences, and his accurate attacks brought him his fourth straight win, earning the decision.

Jack England was also in winning form for Newham, when he recorded a points win over Al Chaima (Finchley).

After sharing the honours in his previous two bouts with Sam Iqbal (Northolt), Newham's Jake Henderson pulled 2-1 ahead in the series with a well-earned points win on his own club show.
