Callum Naylor made the long trip up to the Midlands on Friday to make his Hammers debut against Nottingham youngster Muhammad Al Harbi.

And Naylor dominated from the very first bell, pushing his rival back with a strong and controlled display of boxing to earn a unanimous points win.

Saturday saw seniors Jordan Dujon and Dennis Daglis claim wins in the National Development Championships.

And Dujon went on to be crowned London champion on Sunday, earning a spot in the pre-quarters alongside club juniors Paddy Connors, Omar Jamal and Zayed Mohammed.
