Dagenham’s Jude Binning got back to winning ways with an impressive unanimous points success on the Smallholdings ABC show at Tooting & Mitcham FC.

Binding met Johnny Connors from the host club in a lively contest, conceding a height and reach advantage.

And he stamped his authority on the bout with a strong first round display, only for Connors to come back strongly in the second.

Binding finished well, with two-fisted attacks in the final round helping him to gain the verdict from the judges.

Dagenham’s multi-titled Tariq Agius chases a second straight National Association of Boys’ & Girls’ Club Championship title at Bridlington CYP Sports Centre in Yorkshire on Saturday.

Agius won the Class A title last year and meets Sahil Khan (Merridale ABC) in the Class B 50kg final.

The pair have six national titles between them and are both chasing a place on the England team at this weight and age group.

But Dagenham’s Agius is keen to cement his place in the National team, having been overlooked thus far.
