A MARCH boxing family has enjoyed mixed fortunes over the last few days.

March ABC's Mark Crosby, 13, was victorious when representing the Eastern Counties in Bristol on Monday night.

He beat Luke Osmond in a 48kg match on a unanimous points' decision.

Chatteris boxers Jordan Gill, 13, was also on the bill and overcame Bristol's Coner Wells to help the Eastern Counties to a 5-4 overall victory.

Mark's brother Luke, 11, lost on points an Open Show contest with Capitol ABC's W Sykes at Belgrave ABC last Thursday.

But the boys' cousin Coner Crosby, 11, claimed a points' victory over O O'Leary at the show.

Chatteris ABC's Joseph Payne, 21, will be competing in the quarter-final of the national zone finals at the Sports Institute, in Sheffield tonight (Friday).
