England made a great start, winning five out of the first six bouts, including victories for Anthony O’Donnell, Billy Cooper, Jimmy Dean, Henry Powell, Mohammed Ali and Holly Heffron.

From then on, both countries had their share of successes, with Jude Moore, Adam Mohammed and Patris Mughalazi the other English winners.

“The duel was another great development opportunity for 13 of our pathway boxers to gain valuable international experience,” said England’s Development Coach Amanda Coulson.
