Hope Price, 15 and Liam Finley, 16, will fight in the championship bouts at Snaresbrook, London, this weekend.

Hope earned his place in a unanimous win against Fraser Coleman from Hanwell in the quarter finals staged at Stevenage.

Trainer Mike Sawyer said: “He boxed very well, he still heeds a bit of fitness, otherwise we were very pleased with his performance.”

Liam fought Taz Turner from Warriors and beat him on points.

Mike said: “He won on points and boxed very well indeed.

“His fitness got him through, he is a very nice boxer.”

Nathan lost to Alfie Willey, from Eltham. Mike said he was beaten on a unanimous decision.

Owing to a recent bout of flu Alfie had not been up to his usual fitness levels, he added, and that was what had lost him the fight.

Mike said: “He did himself proud, he just found the third round difficult.”
