WEST HAM duo Myles Cousins and Charlie Hoy travelled to Aldershot on Saturday for the quarter-finals of the NACYP championships and boosted their bid for national honours with fine displays.
Cousins won on points against Joey Avenell of Harwich by a comfortable 15-5 margin.
The West Hammer allowed his opponent to attack and countered with straight shots, putting his unorthodox style to good use.
A right hook from Cousins in the last round dropped Avenell to the canvas and he needed the respite of an eight count before surviving until the final bell.
Charlie Hoy won on the outclassed rule (15 points in front) in the third round against Ricky Leach of the Isle of Thanet.
It quickly became clear that Hoy was a class apart from his opponent landing at will with a varied range of punches.
