Gator ABC’s annual boxing dinner show at the Menzies Prince Regent Hotel in Chigwell was hailed as a success in raising much-needed funds.

The event also provided a pulsating night of boxing, with the opening bout featuringd the much anticipated competitive debut of Marcus Bassi Junior as he took on P. Stokes of Dale Youth.

It developed into a lively contest and Bassi Junior did not disappoint as he outpointed his opponent in an impressive manner.

Next up for Gator was promising schoolboy Kaizer Zyed, who won a decision against S. Jones of Birchington.

This bout was followed by Kane Bassi beating J. Devlin (Kettering) in an entertaining contest that kept the audience on the edge of their seats.

Bobby Newman continued to impress as he took on J. Wenham of Kemsing, winning the contest by applying constant pressure on his opponent and landing many scoring blows.

Aman Mohammed was the first Gator boxer to drop a close decision to J. St John of Moor Lane, but the host club soon restored their winning momentum as senior boxer Charlie Green continued to impress as he outpointed L. Law of Rosehill.

Gerad McDonagh was up next for Gator and produced a fine performance, landing clinical punches as he outpointed K. Penny of Birchington.

But McDonagh’s victory was followed by a disappointing result, as Javir Sanger battled hard but lost a decision to R. Hatton (Folkstone).

The last contest of the night featured Jamal Berleen who continued to impress as he edged a closely-fought battle against F. Goultar of Eltham.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
