A packed card awaits fight fans when West Hill Boxing Club stages its latest show on Saturday.

Eighteen bouts, including 14 involving boxers from the host club, are scheduled to take place at Hollington Community Centre in Wishing Tree Road North. Doors open at 6pm and the boxing gets underway at 7.30pm. Tickets are £10 adults and £5 children/concessions.

The club had three boxers, meanwhile, in action last Friday. Toby Salmon (42kg) floored opponent A. Bayliss after only 17 seconds en route to a first round TKO victory in Southampton.

Elliott Hedger and Carmine Di Paolo were both involved in split decisions at a show in Moulsecoomb, with the former winning against Chae Cullen and the latter tasting defeat at the hands of D. Pringle.
