Eastgate Boxing Club staged another successful programme of amateur boxing in Great Whelnetham on Friday evening.

In the show opener, the host club’s Joe Foster and James Sorrell — from Patrick’s Gym, Ipswich — both showed promise in a well-matched skills bout.

Tommy Flack notched up his second win in as many weeks in a hard-fought contest with Bryn Sparkes (Patrick’s).

The Eastgate boxer’s higher work-rate proved to be the deciding factor in gaining the verdict.

Kaleb Robertson–Howard also maintained his unbeaten record while defeating a strong opponent in Tammer Aslim (Pitsea).

The Eastgate 12-year-old settled well in the first round, using his accurate punching to good effect.

Although Aslim showed great determination during the contest, the result was never in doubt with a unanimous decision.

James Starie found Harry Nichols (Hornchurch) in good form.

The visiting boxer used his height advantage to outpoint the Eastgate boxer, who boxed gamely.

Eastgate’s James Delaney, 15, was unlucky to miss out in a very close contest with Kyle Potter (Patrick’s), whose late flurry edged the split decision.

Eastgate senior Andy Jones gained a technical knockout against Hurstlea’s Carlo Sevino in the second round.

In a crowd-pleasing contest, Billy Gaskin (King’s Lynn) gained a split decision against Ram Singh (Lion Club, London).
