Jak Basi took early control of his clash with Frankie Barratt (Hooks BC), slamming home the effective attacks on his way to a points win.
Kam Singh Basi outpointed Jimmy McDonagh (Hooks BC) for another convincing win for the host club.
Abrahim Kamaly did not need the help of the judges as he halted Cain Bradley (Big T ABC), forcing a second-round stoppage after landing combination attacks.
Brian Mathews also defeated a Big T rival, Alvin Kidega, as the Fairbairn hope boxed well and looked a very good prospect for the future.
Musa Hassan and Ahmed Hasseeb both impressed as they clinched their points victories against Bradley Phillips and Henry Tung from Bath University.
