VAUXHALL Motors ABC staged a hugely-successful show at the Vauxhall Motors Sports & Social Club on Friday with the host club having a boxer in all contests.
Matchmaker Paul Butler snr arranged a programme of 15 bouts and there were Vauxhall boxers down one side of the entire card.
The evening got off to an inauspicious start as three Vauxhall debutantes all went down on points.
Heavyweight junior Dave Griffiths was adjudged the loser against Kirkdale's Aiden Costello.
Schoolboy Dave Shiels gave Kyle Shaughnessy plenty to think about, ducking under Kyle's lone lead and hooking to the head and body.
With little to choose between the boys, the judges favoured Kyle's straighter punching.
Schoolboy Matty Carson conceded to Dean Murphy of Tuebrook's greater strength as the visitor proved a worthy points winner.
Junior Dion Green stopped the rot with a superb points win over Daniel Roth of Sports Connection, Wrexham.
Schoolboy Tommy Reilly pot-shotted against Ardwick's Michael Dillon in a fierce bout in which he was just given the nod.
Junior Sam Crossley made his debut against Thomas Flynn of St Aloysius and was in charge from the first bell. By the third, Sam was so dominant that referee Mike Jones brought the contest to an early finish with Sam awarded 'Best Junior' for his performance.
Schoolboy Tony Lloyd edged out a points win over Matthew Foylan of Oldham while brothers Paul and John Bell had mixed fortunes.
Paul lost on points to John Beswick, of Tuebrook, while John had a points win against Leigh's David Morris.
Buster Exell met Golden Gloves' Multi-Nations medallist Anthony Galvin and set the pace with shots to the head and body, to claim victory and 'Best Schoolboy'.
Debutant Alex Foulkes showed maturity beyond his years to top Higherside's Alex Maddrell, with his opponent receiving a standing count before the contest ended.
Junior Martin Jones' contest with Gemini's Matty Cowin was a feisty brawl and although the visitor put in a finishing spurt to take victory, Martin picked up the 'Boxer of the Night' trophy.
Junior Adam Wynne again fell foul of referee Jones, who had disqualified him for misuse of the head at the Dockers Club just five days earlier.
Adam's contest against the unorthodox but gifted Sam Maxwell of Higherside was halted for persistent holding.
Carl McLeod renewed acquaintances with West Wirral's Graeme McGinty for the third time and his better boxing rewarded him with the decision.
Matty Fagan was cheered to the rafters as he made his first home showing since winning the NACYP Championship in December.
Facing Chris Kelly of St Teresa's, Matty was a convincing points winner without having to extend himself.
