Repton boxing club's teenage heavyweight prospect Jesse Dean Harris underlined his ring potential as he swept to his latest national award in the England Boxing Youth finals at Rotherham last weekend. 'Birdie' Harris a 17-year-old six foot plus already a heavyweight 91kg has already shown his ability at international level and underlined his domination on the home scene as he took control of his final clash. He eased the disappointment of the defeats of the Bethnal Green club's highly fancied pair Henry Turner and Shiloh Defraitas earlier in the three day event Final opponent Theo Fearon from Nottingham's Bilborough Community club was on the receiving end of the Repton boxer's effective shots as Harris dominated the exchanges at long range. Fearon tried gamely to turn the bout his way but east London club hope continued to find the target as he stayed on top and clinched the unanimous verdict from all three ringside judges. Earlier the Repton boxer had made sure of his final spot eliminating north east rival Clyde Best from the South Durham Club in their semi final meeting. The Durham entry a former national titleholder could not halt Harris's title progress with the Repton boxer moving through with the unanimous votes of the ringside judges. However Repton officials were less impressed with a split vote that went against Defraitas after his 56kg final against European junior champion Charles Frankham (The Ring). In fact the eagerly awaited duel of the outstanding multi titled duo proved disappointing with too many scrappy exchanges and warnings from the referee before the Bracknell club boxer took the verdict and the title. Defraitas showed his speedy skills on his way to the final eliminating Wallsall Wood's Hamzah Ahmed in a quarter final bout on opening day of the tournament. Darlington's Joe Tyers was his next rival on the title trail but could not stop the Repton boxer's progress and Defraitas set up his final clash with Frankham. Multi-titled Turner's hopes of adding to his success list was halted in his quarter final 60kg clash with Mark Chamberlain from Portsmouth's Wiseman Boxing Academy. Chamberlain with more that a year age advantage edged the verdict over Turner a gold medallist at last year's European schools championship.

London ABA Elite Semi Finals Report & Results March 2017 Ex Repton boxer Viddal Riley, eliminated current club hope Jacob Peterson in the London semi finals at Tottenham on Thursday and took a vital step on England Boxing's Elite title trail. West Ham's Riley stole the show in the top contest on the first night of the championships winning the all east London club battle. Controlling the clash from the opening bell, the 19-year-old heavyweight who won a European medal before being out of boxing through injury for two years, outpointed his game Repton rival. Riley then watched Miguels Ben Vickers beat his clubmate Ifeanyi Ndidi in the other 9lkg semi final and faces Vickers in the final at Harrow on Thursday. Tight decisions went against Repton with two established club favourites losing the closest of 3-2 decisions in the London preliminaries. Long serving Ryan Pickard put up a tough struggle against Double Jab club entry Conor Hinds but it was the south Londoner who took the judges majority verdict in the middleweight clash. Also going out was the Bethnal Green club's lightweight Billy Beer, beaten on another 3-2 scoring by Darren Ballinger from the powerful Islington club. Friday night saw the exit of Repton welterweight hope Romario Wallace as the judges voted for another Islington boxer Lamin Conteh by a 4-1 margin after a keenly fought contest. Ballinger and Conteh both go forward to the London finals at Harrow Leisure Centre while Repton's 86kg walkover winner James Branch awaits his first call to action on the national title trail.
