Dolan did his best to use his boxing skills including his raking left jab but Singh contested the fight all the way to take the win.

Jo Horrocks, who was unable to box due to a cold, was awarded the Mick Leahy belt as the best Warwick boxer for his achievements during the past season.

The belt was created in honour of the former British Middleweight Champion.

Then it was the turn of the Mayfield boxers to show their skills.

Jordan Renolds lost an exciting, all-action, bout to Charles Dunne from the Box Clever Academy.

John Keily had an excellent skilful contest taking a majority win from Chad Woodfield of Ludlow.

In what was possibly the most technical bout of the evening, Luke Delaney had his hands full before losing to Idris Mohamed from the Wellington Club.

Eric Stanton boxed well but could not contain Zaryab Khan of Walsall Wood and lost on points.

Jack Foley looked unlucky to lose on points to Wayne Smith from Droitwich.

Nathan Whitehouse lost another cracker to Connor Tierney from Birmingham City.

Nathan Keegan came out like a tornado and maintained this pressure for the duration of the contest, however not all of his punches were landing on the target area and he lost on a majority to Ehteshan Hussain from Wellington.

Warwick ABC, based at Warwick Racecourse via Hampton Street, was formed last September and is open on Tuesdays, Thursday and Fridays from 6pm to 8.30pm.
