The latest news from the local boxing scene

Three west London boxers are in action on a Hayemaker promotion at York Hall on Saturday night.

Wembley lightweight Youssef Khoumari tackles Bexleyheath rival Josh Thorne at the iconic venue.

Hammersmith super welterweight Daniel Keenan, meanwhile, takes on Ilian Markov of Bulgaria.

Former IQ amateur Tunji Ogunniya is also booked for action and takes on Bulgarian Konstantin Alexandrov at middleweight.

The iconic venue was the scene for victories for three west London fighters on a Goodwin bill last Saturday.

Former IQ amateur Dennis Wahome picked up a points win over Jamie Speight in a competitive bout.

Hammersmith light heavyweight Dana Zaxo kept his unbeaten record with a third-round stoppage of Georgi Valevski of Bulgaria.

Willesden light heavyweight Ossie Jervier also collected a third-round stoppage win, beating Slovakian rival Kristof Demendi.

After last weekend’s successes, it is hoped there will be more victories for west London boxers at York Hall this Saturday.
