White Hart Lane super heavyweight Jeamie Tshikeva lost his England ABA National Elite Championships quarter-final at the University of East London.

Tshikeva took on Double Jab rival Courtney Bennett in the last eight tie and there was little between them in the first round.

However, a cut opened up above Tshikeva’s eye, prompting the doctor to take a look at it, before the contest was stopped.

With Bennett having the edge in the first round, it meant Tshikeva suffered a defeat on points.
