The latest news from the local boxing scene

There was double joy for White Hart Lane ABC at the London ABA Elite Championships, with two of their members taking titles.

Heavyweight Sherif Musak and super heavyweight Jeamie Tshikeva both won their bouts to take the regional titles.

Musak took on Ben Vickers of Miguels in his final and started brightly, taking the fight to his opponent.

Vickers suffered a nasty cut above his left eye, which eventually led to the fight being called off towards the end of round one, handing Musak the win.

Club colleague Tshikeva, meanwhile, outpointed Courtney Bennett of Double Jab in his final to take the title.

The triumphant White Hart Lane pair now progress to take part in the national quarter-finals, which take place at the University of East London on April 20.

The semi-finals take place at the same venue the following day, before the final at the iconic York Hall in Bethnal Green on April 22.
