Romford Boxing Club had mixed fortunes at the Waltham Forest show at the Prince Regent Hotel.
Dane Owen, 17, lost on points to a rival from south London’s Amigos ABC, but 19-year-old brother Jordan began well against an opponent from Haddenham.
Pressing home with big hooks, the elder Owen earned a second-round stoppage but fellow debutant Daniel Ciuma, 18, was edged out on points by his rival from Finchley.
Super-heavyweight Ayo Barek was the last Romford fighter to feature and produced a very strong performance against his Amigos ABC opponent.
The six foot seven inch tall Barek deservedly won on points and coach Paul Claydon said: “All of the lads did extremely well. It’s going to be a busy season but we have our biggest squad for years.”
