RADCLIFFE Elite ABC put on a top-notch show on Friday night after moving their annual event to the Longfield Suite in Prestwich following the closure of the Civic Centre.

A total of five Radcliffe boxers competed on the 13-bout card.

The best contest of the evening involved Radcliffe Elite senior lightweight Zain Sarfraz, who won a points decision against the very experienced Sam Melville, of Bredbury & Stockport ABC, who came fresh from training with pros in Marbella.

Sarfraz got the verdict after three rounds of non-stop action which had the crowd on their feet throughout.

It also earned him the Norman Howarth Memorial Trophy for fighter of the night.

Zain's brother, senior lightweight Umair Sarfraz, lost his debut contest on points by a majority decision to Daniel Poole, of Paramount ABC.

Radcliffe ABC schoolboy Ryan Williams produced an excellent performance to outpoint Kaiden Maitley, of Partiington ABC.

While schoolboy Charlie Haigh lost a points verdict to Addison Knight, of Eccles ABC.

Finally schoolboy Isaac Jones got the better of David Chalmers, of Eccles ABC, in another good contest.

A number of Bury ABC boxers also took part in the show.

Senior Basil Goher lost on points to Michael Rattigon, of Oldham Boys, but junior Rehman Afzal edged a split decision against Sale West's Daniel Brown.

Schoolgirl Candice Wolstenholme also took to the ring in a skills bout.

Meanwhile, Bury ABC fighter Muhammad Ali continued his unbeaten record for the British Lionhearts in the World Series of Boxing.

He helped the Lionhearts beat Morocco in their final match of the group stages.

They will now go on to face France in the quarter-finals in mid-May.
