ROYSTON'S boxing pedigree is set to be further enhanced this month, with three of the town's hottest talents battling it out for yet more honours.

National Golden Gloves Champion George Crotty will represent England in the Four Nations Championships in Sheffield from Friday, April 11, in the hope of adding the British under-54kg title to his growing trophy cabinet.

The 14-year-old, a student at Meridian School, told The Crow last month: "I'm definitely going to be aiming to get a medal. I think that I can do well and hopefully I can become British champion."

Another Royston youngster, 19-year-old Bradley Evans, will also be in action on the same day, hoping to continue his fine form in a Home Counties Featherweight senior final in Luton.

The three-time Junior National Champion and England under-19 captain is set to face experienced 31-year-old Lawrence Lewis, a former National ABA Bantamweight finalist.

If successful, Evans will progress to the pre- national quarter finals, where he would encounter the winner of the Eastern Counties final.

Completing a triple of boxing highlights, 26-year-old Billy Crotty will also be involved in Home Counties action.

However, he will face a tough test, having to possibly box twice, with Dwain Phillips of Luton Shamrock up first on Sunday April 6, followed by Bushey's highly-rated Davey Docherty, in his 64kilo bouts ahead of the final in Luton.

All three will be representing Stevenage Boxing Club, who have produced one or more national champions every year since 2000.
