THE Further Education Centre was full to bursting point as four Sparta ABC March prospects stepped into the ring on Saturday.
About 300 people watched Gracjan Ciureja, his brother Eryk, Reece Oldfield and Dylan Greenacre compete.
Gracjan Ciureja, 10, held his own in a skills bout against Hope Price, of St Ives.
Oldfield, 13, then produced a superb performance to beat Jay Bradley, of Finchley, by unanimous decision.
His win was even more impressive considering his opponent was vastly more experienced, earning him the award for best boxer of the night.

Eryk Ciureja, 11, stretched his unbeaten record to six bouts with a majority points decision win over Connor Townsend, of Braunstone.
He now has the longest winning record of anyone of his height and weight in the country.

Matt Lenton, Sparta ABC trainer, said: “The place was so full we were squeezed in like sardines and had to turn people away. There must mave been 300 people there.
“I would like to say a big thank you to everyone involved in the night for helping us to put on such a great show.”
