ALL Stars ABC'S Cameran Nabeel is already gearing up for a fresh challenge after scooping the London Mayor's Cup last Friday.
The lightweight star from Willesden gained the judges' verdict after outpointing Bryan Lopez from the Frank Bruno Academy in one of seven bouts at Porchester Hall.
And Nabeel is one of nine All Stars boxers who will travel to Romania this weekend for what is certain to be a testing Bucharest Tournament against amateur fighters from around Europe.
Also among the All Stars party is heavyweight Pawel Switilli, who won his Mayor's Cup bout with a first-round knockout and became the sixth of seven winners from the Harrow Road club on the night.
"It was only Cameran's second fight on Friday and we're very proud of him," said All Stars founder Isola Akay. "I knew he had potential and he did very well.
"We're very pleased to be invited to Romania and the boys can learn from this. Most of them have never been abroad and some of the boxers they'll be facing will be very physical, but we'll be ready!"
London Mayor Boris Johnson presented the cup to Nabeel, but another high-profile guest, new world heavyweight champion David Haye, was unable to attend.
Haye was in Las Vegas to receive his WBA belt and missed an evening of high-quality boxing, with Jordan James the first of the All Stars contingent to taste victory on points against L William (Fitzroy Lodge).
Justyn Page-Allen also won on points, against Alan Jacobs (South Oxhey), but Fahad Malik was on the wrong end of the decision against the Peacock's Chris Court.
Hesham Mohammed defeated Mark Osborne (Finchley) on points and Jaffar Hashimi provided All Stars' second stoppage of the evening as he beat S Malik (Fitzroy Lodge) in the third round.
