Prospects from Haddenham and Ely Boxing Club enjoyed a successful trip to the capital last weekend.

Emerging stars Callum Francis and Hope Price stepped into the ring at a show at West Ham and both sealed impressive unanimous decision victories.

Francis was first through the ropes and the youngster boxed with poise and skill, landing some solid shots on his Newham-based opponent to take the victory.

Young Hope Price also performed well, moving around the ring and slipping punches to great effect to conquer over Holland Park fighter, Oliver Smith.

Coach Mike Sawyer was delighted to see the young duo grab wins. He said: “I’m very pleased with them both. Callum landed some great shots, both left and right and he’s doing everything right at the moment.
