Gladiators Boxing Academy trainer Dennis Doyle hailed their 2014 Christmas amateur show as the best yet.
All the fighters performed with skill and determination to make it an unforgettable event at Huddersfield Sports Centre.
Salmon Tanvir opened the boxing spectacle by dominating his opponent through all three rounds with an eye-catching display, using clever footwork, fast hands and slick head movement.
As the main contests approached, soon-to-be professional Paddy Doyle received some disappointing news as the 67kg fighter’s opponent from Sheffield’s Ingle Academy pulled out due to an eye injury.
Doyle said: “Paddy was left very frustrated, he had trained really hard for three months to get in the ring.”
Kircho Ruskov’s opponent was not given permission to fight because he weighed 4kg above the 62kg limit for the fight.
Super heavyweight Karo Jalal went head to head with Stephen Garber of Platinum ABC for the senior Gladiators title. Karo, pictured right, started strongly as he wobbled his much taller opponent in the first round with a well-timed left hook.
In the second and third rounds, Karo landed the cleaner shots, rolling under his opponent’s jab and striking heavy punches to win by unanimous decision.
The junior Gladiators title clash had Rajan Singh Gosal paired against Hasnain Sajjad, the former struggling against a stronger opponent and being put down in the first round.
Gosal showed great fighting spirit from then on, leaving everything in the ring until the final bell, but Bury boxer Sajjad managed to get a favourable decision from the judges.
The most intriguing fight was Marvan Ibrahim up against Boarshaw ABC’s Joe Ecko.
Ibrahim began slowly, losing the first round to some fast combinations before edging the next.
In the final round Ibrahim moved up a gear as he rattled his opponent with quick punches, but to the surprise of the coach and crowd Boarshaw man Ecko was awarded the win.
In the next bout, Ammar Akbar used his jab to perfection, winning all three rounds and making it three wins out of three for him on a unanimous decision.
Others victorious boxers were talented youngsters Conner Doyle and Jacob Quinn.
Doyle used clever counter punching to win against a more experienced opponent, while Quinn dominated his whole fight with some quality movement and powerful combinations.
His second successive win was his most complete performance to date.
Trainer Doyle said: “Everyone enjoyed the night, the atmosphere was electric and the centre was packed.”
