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.
