Carloin said: "It was another good showing, and after a tough opening round, Conor was just too strong.
"He has a great left jab, and after having his opponent on the ropes the referee stopped the bout. Like Ryan, Conor did extremely well."
A third Royston boxer, Wesley Washington, 13, had been expected to show his talent, but is bout was unfortunately cancelled.
Carloin added: "It was a great showing from our boys and I was very pleased with them, we have some very talented boxers at the club.
"We've got our dinner show coming up in a few weeks time, and that will give people the chance to see how good some of our boys really are. Of our last nine outings we've come away with eight wins - and that is very encouraging.
