Hooks ABC saw two youngsters edged out at the National Association of Boys & Girls’ Club Championship finals in Bristol.

Reigning national champion Jon O’Donnell, 15, lost to Adam Hussain (Steel City ABC) after a close 49kg bout.

And former national champion Dylan McDonagh, 15, was beaten by Sahil Khan (Merridale ABC) at 50kg, as two-time national champion Patris Mughalzai, 15, saw his 57kg final against Louai Ali (O’Dell’s ABC) postponed after his rival failed to pass a medical, having been the victim of a city centre attack.

The two hope to meet at a neutral venue in the new year, after Mughalzai sportingly offered to turn down a walkover win, and Hooks coach Steve Newland said: “It was tough on Patris, he’s worked so hard and boxed so well.

“It’s no secret Jon has been carrying an injury but both bouts could’ve gone either way. A little more from McDonagh in the last and he would’ve been a winner.”
