Hooks ABC youngsters helped a London Select side beat a Dublin Select 4-3 to lift the Powerday Crossan Family Foundation Cup at Camden Town’s Irish Centre.

Proceeds will be shared between The Crossan Family Foundation, who support London boxing and rugby charities, and the London Irish Centre to help with outreach work in the community.

Jamie Barrett, 10, was edged out by Anthony McDonagh (White Hart Lane ABC), while Tony O’Donnell, 12, lost a close contest to Dublin’s Ashton Ruth.

Patrick Connors, 15, used his reach to pick off Dublin’s Lewis Brophy, before captain Obi Ekbunike used his speed and movement to beat Tony McGlynn in an open senior bout.

Jack Oliphant (Body Shots) was beaten by Dublin’s Peter Vrinceanu after a shock decision, but White Hart Lane’s Jeiane Tshikeva beat Paul O’Rourke in the deciding bout to clinch victory for London Select.

Steve Newland, Hooks ABC and London coach said: “Mick Crossan and Powerday do a wonderful job for sport and youth of London and the boxing lived up to and matched the fundraising.

“We look forward to this event becoming a firm fixture in the London boxing calendar. Our Hooks lads all boxed well, it was a big occasion for them and they all performed under pressure.”
