Tumber, 23, scored a unanimous points victory over A Walsh from Southend ABC to make it three wins from three bouts so far this year.

Coach Mike Sawyer, said: “He boxed beautifully and threw some really good straight left hands. Matt is coming along very well this year.”

Also in action at the weekend was 16-year-old Jack Halls, who cruised into the semi finals of the CYP Championships with a 35-17 win over Isaac Bloor from Queensbury ABC.

Coach Sawyer, said: “Jack’s combination punches were excellent, he totally out boxed his opponent who is a very good little boxer.”

Halls will fight for a spot in the final of the prestigious national championships in November.

Three Haddenham and Ely fighters will be in action again on Saturday as they travel to Fairbarn ABC.

Seasoned campaigner Liam Goodjohn, 25, will be in action at 69kgs , while two new fighters Callum Gibbs and Alex Lee will make their debuts in the ring.
