IT WAS a busy show for Fairbairn ABC and members of the Basi clan at the Prince Regent Hotel, Chigwell recently, with home club boxers appearing in all 13 bouts on a successful programme.

Keeping busy and refusing to let his opponent settle, he took the verdict to avenge a previous defeat by the Fulbourn boxer.

Jacob Basi was a very close points winner against Liam Hunt of Chalvedon. The result could have gone either way, but he just stole the verdict on a split decision from the judges.
