West Ham Boys began 2020 with a big home show against a team from Glasgow, which featured 19 bouts, on Sunday.
And there were stand-out performances from Bobby and Billy Brewer, Frankie Wood, Riley Murray, the Fernley twins and Connor Mitchell.
Mitchell had a toe-to-toe battle with multi title winner Adam Lyon that had the crown on their feet and saw them earn the best boxers of the day awards.
