Big Dan Parker brought the house down with a blood and thunder encounter with Ola Aluasa from the New Cross based Double jab ABC, Big dan started well working behind his jab but an unfazed Aluasa soon got close enough to let his own big shots go with some heavy right hands landing towards the end of the first round,clearly buoyed by his rally at the end of the first Aluasa came out firing at the start of the second and Big Dan had to soak up a couple of stiff jabs before he could get his own jab working, with both boxers working well on the inside it was Big Dan Parker who began to get the upper hand and as the round neared its close so Big Dan started to land the telling shots, with Aluasa on the ropes Big Dan landed with a heavy barrage that brought about a standing eight count, Aluasa looked weary as Big Dan looked for the finish but the bell sounded to take the contest in to the final round.Once again Aluasa knowing he must be behind on the judges scorecards came out looking for the knockout and Big Dan had to soak up more punishment before once again finishing the round strongly behind the jab, as the bell sounded both boxers embraced in mutual respect of a very hard fought contest, Big Dan had his hand raised to rapturous applause from an entertained crowd for another worthy victory. Robert Garvey returned to action fresh from a recent win in Ireland to drop a points decision against Islington southpaw Reece Shagourie at middleweight, another Earlsfield middle Ian Otenio made it five wins on the spin with a well earned win over Idris Hussein from the world famous Fitzroy Lodge ABC. Hussein who has recorded wins against other earlsfield boxers found Otenio too hot to handle and struggled to deal with the earlsfield boxers height and reach advantage.Simeon Hepburn got his Earlsfield career off to a flying start with a points victory over Rosehill's previously undefeated jake Davis at light middle while for the juniors Alfie Arnold,Kane Corby,Okonini Speare,Tucker Penfold and Shakur Bryden all recorded victories.
