A third Gator boxer to impress was Amaaan Mohammed who overpowered his opponent, Patrick Hanrahan of Rangers.

Of the Gator ABC entries in the semi-finals, only Taran Singh suffered the pain of elimination.

It means Gator ABC have six fighters in action at the finals of the Championships next weekend.

Both Chris O’Driscoll and Harrison Vickery received byes in the semi-finals, having won in the quarter-finals last month.

Bobby Newman, a champion in his division last year, is also through to the finals having received byes in the past two rounds.
