TWO members of the Hainault-based Gator Boxing Club have reached the semi-finals of the English Schools' Boxing Championships.

Harvey Horn, a southpaw and pupil at Epping's St John's Comprehensive School, scored a majority decision over Billericay's Carl Davis in the quarter-finals at Grays, Essex, on Sunday.

After two rounds in which a clash of styles left the contest evenly-balanced, Abridge resident Horn, 13, upped the tempo in the final round to narrowly defeat a skilful opponent.

In reaching this stage of the competition, Harvey had earlier outscored a previously undefeated national champion.
