ROYSTON featherweight boxer Brad Evans has continued his good form after reaching the quarter finals of the Senior ABA Boxing Championships.

Talented Evans saw off Eastern Counties champion Joe Taylor of Brentwood on Saturday, to set up a thrilling quarter-final match with the Combined Services Champion Corporal James Allen.

Evans' coach Dave Blows said: "Reaching this stage of the Senior ABAs in his first attempt is a massive achievement for Bradley.
