WEST HAM'S Dudley O'Shaughnessy has been selected for international action when a mixed England squad takes on the visiting United States team in a Sunday show at York Hall, Bethnal Green.

The talented boxer (pictured) is called up for the home team at 69kg on the show which includes male and female contests.
