ISLAND boxers recorded one win in four appearances in London and Bristol over the weekend.

Boyd Munroe recorded the Jersey Leonis ABC quartet’s only success, guesting for Empire ABC, in Bristol where Tom Frame and Shane Goggin suffered defeats. In London, Ryan Hodgson’s hopes of reaching the semi-finals of the Novice ABA Class B section, representing the Western Counties, were also dashed with a defeat.

Hodgson started the first round really well by putting a lot of pressure on, but he didn’t replicate his performance in the second round when he eventually got a standing eight count.
