BURNLEY boxers Owen Thomas and Liam Ormerod retained their places in the 100% club after securing further success.

The Roche Amateur Boxing Club pair recorded respective victories over Thomas Brazzell and Gilbert Smith at Headlands Social Club in Hartlepool.

It’s now six wins in as many bouts now for 21-year-old Owen, who had his arm raised aloft by virtue of a unanimous decision against his Shildon-based foe.

And teenage sensation Liam (13) also triumphed with a majority decision in only his third contest against his opponent from Newcastle.

However, Bria Fielding (13) lost a narrow contest on her debut against Sadie Thomas.

Elsewhere, 15-year-old sensation George Drinkwater romped in to the North West finals after cruising past Chorley’s Tom Scott at Gorton’s Boxing Centre of Excellence.

He’ll now face Middleton’s Dan Wright.

Marvin Jackson, unbeaten in four fights, will also appear at the same show as he goes toe-to-toe with Cumbria’s Tom Ross.
