The championship bouts were on next
First up was Charlie Martin Team Wiseman B.c V Harry Hillier Southampton B.c this was a very good bout fought at a good pace with Hillier using the ring and speed to control the bout leaving the judges to award hillier the win.
Jadon Prior Poseidon B.c up against Lloyd Farrington Heart of Portsmouth B.c
This was a well-contested bout throughout with both boxers giving a lot by way of attack and defence leaving the judges to give the win to Farrington by way of a split decision.
Alex Cole Creek side B.c v Ki Grant-Callier Tenterden B.c
This in my opinion was the bout of the night as the 2 boxers gave their all in the ring. It was a fight of two halves shifting from one to another. I would not like to have judged this bout but the judges gave the win to Cole.
Daryl Bath Poseidon B.c V Charles Mugabe Pound for Pound B.c
This was a cracker of a bout a close one tit for tat all the way to the last bell.
The decision was Bath the winner by way of split decision.
