Two young boxers from Haddenham put up a good fight when they competed in the final of the Youth Championships in Middlesex.
Liam Finlay and Callum Francis, both 17, got to the finals but lost by a close margin.
Haddenham Boxing Club coach Mike Sawyer said: “You could have tossed a coin to find the winner.
“Both lads put up a really good fight and their opponents were strong competition.”
For Liam it is the third time he has got the final and the third time he has lost out on a win.
Mike said: “This year he boxed very well indeed, there was barely anything in it, his opponent was very good.”
For Callum, his opponent was very sharp and despite putting up a good fight he too lost out, Mike added.
