Tidy O'Donnell became the fourth winner of the Luke Fitzpatrick Trophy on Friday night as Hooks ABC hosted their first event of the season.
The Ladbroke Grove youngster, who won via an unanimous decision on the night, was recognised as the evening’s most deserving boxer.
The tournament, which last year was won by Danny Barrett, was held in honour of Luke Fitzpatrick, a former pupil of Salvatorian College – which hosted the event – who was murdered in Dollis Hill at the age of 25 in 2012.
Elsewhere, Edward Barrett was handed the best home boxer award, despite coming out on the wrong end of a split decision against Alfie Mehegan.
Tony O’Donnell started off the show with victory in what proved to be a lively skills contest, while Silas Rose Morris won courtesy of an unanimous decision against Michael McDonagh, which was recognised as the bout of the night.
Hooks coach Steve Newland said: “It was great to have Luke’s family with us again. His memory will live on with this event getting bigger and better every year.
“I’d also like to thank Flannerys Powerday and Thames Materials for their help in getting the event on.”
