*Some of the bouts may already have taken place as boxing started at 12pm. I would like to apologise for the recent lack of updates. Unfortunately I run this site alone and I have just 3 weeks left of my university degree and work is very bust at the moment.
I will post full results and the semi-final line-up as soon as we have them. Once again I would just like to thank you for your continued support and I’d like to assure you normal service will be resumed as soon as my degree is complete.
