Seven of the 10 home fighters in action at the Eaton Socon club’s Little End Road base recorded wins.

Bill Davis and Ron Belkin maintained their 100 per-cent records by beating other unbeaten boxers, while Bobbie Stanley, Walter Smith, Alfie Smith, Gareth Macey and George Pyke also triumphed on points.
