And 14-year-old Luan Veras had his second competitive bout, earning a unanimous points win after dominating his opponent in a one-sided contest.

Spokesman Kul Singh said: “Thanks to the trainers and coaches Nigel Rowlands, Dino Farrell and Glenn Wybrow, who are always there to help and support our young boxers in a outstanding team effort.

“All this was topped off with great sunny weather and the Royal wedding, not forgetting the FA Cup!”
