HOLLAND Shore Boxing Club's Dragisic brothers came through tough contests at the weekend.

Oliver Dragisic represented the St Osyth-based club in the national quarter-finals of the National Association of Boys and Girls Club Championships, in Dagenham.

Up against Jay Bassi, he began steadily as his opponent edged a close first round.

However, the Holland Shore fighter would not be denied as he slowly ground down the stylish Fairbarn House boy.

With non-stop aggression over the remaining two rounds, he ran out a convincing, unanimous points winner.

Twin William and elder brother Charlton also scored convincing wins as they displayed their talents on the Colchester show at St Benedict's Catholic College.

William showed outstanding ability while unanimously outpointing Felbridge's Hamza Sharif.

It took his total this season alone to four wins from five contests.

Older brother Charlton, meanwhile, took the fight to Colchester's rugged Wasim Rach.

Both battled over three lively rounds, with Charlton winning on a unanimous points decision.

Also boxing in the NABC's National Championship quarter-finals at Dagenham was Holland Shore's rugged Arnie Dawson.

He showed tremendous heart and ability when losing out in a close encounter to two-time national champion Jon O'Donnell, representing London.

Back in Colchester, three other boys were performing for Holland Shore.

Blake Housman lost out to a close points decision, when up against Fenland Spa's Ryan Ebers.

Also appearing for Holland Shore was Trez Thomas, who was up against Billericay's George Hart.

Both showed classy combinations as fortunes swayed either way, with both getting the upper hand in a classic skills contest.

Jack Housman contested his seventh skills against Fenland's Joe Doe, with both showing lots of potential for the future.

Also in winning form, at the Patrick ABC show in Ipswich, was classy Tyler Ball.

Competing in his first-ever bout, he showed tremendous ability when outpointing Kingfisher's Connor Baldwin.
