Bin Tyler's son Sydney Butcher (seven) beat Bury's Alfie Price. Jack Docherty (16) was in fine form beating Colchester's George French. Connor McHugh (seven) had probably his best-ever fight, beating Bury's Kyle Reeves.

Becky Bailey (12) got her first-ever win, beating Skegnesess's Hope Grant. Seb Havens (12) beat Robbie Pooley from world champion Dean Sugden's Newark gym.

Henry Andrews (13) was in fine form, beating Londoner Frankie Hillier. Jade Marie Campbell (12) beat Londoner Jordan Ranson using her front kicks to great effect. Charlotte Broom (13) used her excellent jab to dominate Londoner Sydney Spencer.

Again Eastern Counties champion Nicky McHugh (eight) fought his heart out and looked to have done enough to win, but the decision went to Ipswich's older, heavier Tyreece Hunt. Coach Frank Crosswell felt Nicky definitely did enough to beat his taller, heavier opponent.

Remy Sayer (eight) having his first bout was up against Newark's Josh Dent who had had three bouts. Remy fought excellently but experience told. Russell Smith (21) lost a close decision but looked sharp. Michael Irons (13) and Lucia Graziano (eight) did well but need to work harder in the gym and listen to their coaches. A great day for the 3 Lions fighters.

The classes are all held at the 3 Lions Gym, Estcourt Road (off Northgate Street), Great Yarmouth, Junior classes are Tuesdays and Thurdays (under nine) 6.15-7.15pm, (nine+) 7.15-8.30pm. Adults, Mon/Wed/Fri 7-9pm.
