Dagenham boxers have stayed in training to launch their annual bid for honours at the Haringey Box Cup at Alexandra Palace this weekend.

Europe’s biggest boxing tournament is now in its 10th year and attracts around 500 entries in a competition starting on Friday (6pm) and continuing on Saturday and Sunday (noon).

Daggers have a quartet of boxers lined up, including prospects Freddie Hudson and Manny Atuwaogu in the Class A 69kg class.

Abdoul Charare-Toure is in the Class B 75kg division, while Martin Dimitrov is in 81kg action.

Kerim Agius and Phil Maloney miss out with injury and admission is on the door.

Barking cruiserweight Daniel Mendes made it four wins in five outings with a 40-36 points triumph over Croatian Tony Bilic on the Goodwin Promotion show at York Hall on Saturday.

Former Peacock amateur Mendes dominated with solid southpaw attacks throughout.
