Tees trio help gun down the Army.

MIDDLESBROUGH boxers helped a North-east Select beat the Army boxing team 4-2 on Hartlepool Catholic's charity boxing dinner show at the Mayfair Centre in Seaton Carew.

National Universities lightmidleweight champion Louis Cunningham outgunned Army team captain Gavin Magee, who holds wins over the Catholic Club's Stuart Buckley and Spennymoor's Gary Dodds, on unanimous points in the top of the bill contest.

Cunningham's Wellington ABC team-mate Peter Martin stayed loose to jab off tattooed southpaw Reece Fields for a wide unanimous middleweight win.

But the central Middlesbrough club's lightweight Kallum Leather could count himself very unlucky in a unanimous loss to southpaw Chris Touzey, whose nose streamed blood in rounds three and four as Leather came into his own.

The North-east Select's other wins came from Buckley, over Danny Allen, and Kevin Nelson of Plains Farm who comprehensively outpunched Richard Starkey.

Supporting bouts included a majority win for East Middlesbrough junior Luke Savage over Hartlepool Catholic's David Smith.

Phil Thomas School of Boxing senior James Kilvington looked a touch hard done by in his 28th bout, dropping a four-round unanimous decision to Army middleweight Tommy Leigh despite picking his punches well.

It was the same story for Redcar junior Jake McBride, who initiated the action and had success with his lead left against Hartlepool Catholic's Jack Winspear, only to drop a unanimous decision by scores of 19-14, 10-7 and 19-11.

A memorabilia auction which included a signed pair of Roberto Duran gloves from the Panamanian's October 6 sportsman's dinner appearance at the Mayfair Centre raised pounds 1,245 for Care For Casualties.
