Callum Francis, Liam Finlay and Tarek Khan, all 17, took part in the event with all of them commended by their coach for skillful fighting against their opponents.

Callum and Liam will compete in the finals this Sunday (9) in London at 67kg and 63kg respectively.

Mike Sawyer, said: “Callum has boxed since he was eight years old. He boxed very well, he has got a lovely straight left, slipping punches and moving round the ring well. He is going to be something special.

“Liam is a sharp boxer and his combination is superb. He got to the finals two years ago so this will be his third final in three years.

“Tarek gave a very good performance but was beaten on points. He did well.

“He is fairly new to this and will make a good boxer with more tuition.”
