Amy Andrews and Oriance Lungu both experienced success in Manchester
Two Haringey Police amateurs had something to celebrate after winning titles at the England Boxing National Elite Championships.
Fighting at 57kg, Amy Andrews took on Arena rival Raven Chapman in the final of their division.
Andrew controlled the bout from start to finish, displaying both faster hand speed and the quicker footwork.
Though Chapman was the aggressor, she was continually caught by Andrews when coming forward.

And the pair will hope to build on their national successes in the coming weeks.
