Ernie’s Amateur Boxing Club talents put on top performances in front of their home crowd last weekend.
A handful of the Chatteris club’s young fighters stepped through the ropes against boxers from across the region at the Cromwell Leisure Centre.
More than 200 fans – including Dave ‘Boy’ Green - watched over the enthralling night of boxing that saw Ernie’s prospects Rocky Curtis, Taylor Cowdrey, Owen McVicar, Reece Lennon and Max Davies showcase their skills.
Curtis, 11, took on Sparta ABC’s Aiden Fitzpatrick in a skulls bout, while Cowdrey also faced Sparta-based opposition in the form of Thomas Nerus.
McVicar out-boxed Halstead BC’s Mitch Lawson to take the victory, and Lennon was also victorious in his bout with Whittlesey’s Rhys Pattenson.

Ernie’s coach, Ernie Payne, said: “I was very pleased with all of my boxers. They all worked hard in the gym ready for the home show.
