WEST HAM'S ABA final loser Dudley O'Shaughnessy is looking forward to a revenge chance after dropping a controversial decision to Steel City club rival Liam Cameron at the Sheffield Institute of Sport on Friday night.
The talented welterweight rivals are both named by the ABA for the three-nations tournament on Merseyside at the Liverpool Olympia on May 28/29.
The two English entries will be split to box in different semi-final contests, so could both go through to the final.
The 19-year-old O'Shaughnessy looked tense and until the final round, did not show the sparkling form that has made him look one of the outstanding competitors on the national title trail.

Even TV commentator Richie Woodhall, former world champion and Olympic Games medallist, and currently a an adviser with the national ABA squad, insisted "I can't see why many of O'Shaughnessy's punches are not scoring points."
Despite the Canning Town boxer's last round assault, the judges made Cameron an 8-6 winner and he could celebrate his ABA title success.
