Sparta ABC star Eryk Ciureja added another impressive victory to his record in Essex last weekend.

The 16-year-old prospect made short work of his bout against home fighter Tariq Agius, easing to a unanimous decision victory – the 28th win of his blossoming amateur career.

Ciureja dominated from the first bell, putting Agius on the back foot throughout all three rounds.

The Fenland fighter was sharp with his combinations and his skill proved to be too much for Agius, who was handed only his fourth defeat of a 26-fight career.

Sparta coach, Matt Lenton, said: “Eryk is always learning and improving but he was magnificent last week.

“We’re all very proud of him at the club.”
