Bognor-based Ockley ABC sent two representatives to box on a bill at Moulsecoomb ABC in Brighton.

Billy Castle, aged 17, weighed in at 62kg to face Marrick Blunt, a much more experienced boxer. Castle rose to the occasion, showing fast hands and plenty of courage to win convincingly on points.

Simon Knill, 31, who was at 54kg to fight Jesse Hamilton in only his third contest and his superior work-rate and body shots slowed Hamilton to a crawl in the latter stages and a points win was a formality. This brings his record to three wins in three fights.
