Four Romford boxers travelled with regional team to event on Iberian Peninsula

Tim Olla was one of four of four Romford boxers that took part in the Odivelas International Competition as part of a strong London North East Division squad.

Olla captained the team and was joined in the squad by Ethan Tisbury, Ion Daniel Ciuma and Anders Krogh.

Romford coaches Paul Claydon Sr. and John Burling also travelled with the regional team to Portugal.

Also touring with the London North East Division squad was Alma ABC coach Kevin Godfrey, who aided the team.

Krogh, who met up with the team after flying in from Copenhagen in his native Denmark, took home a gold from the event.

After proving too strong for his Portuguese rival in the semi-finals, Krogh came up against another home favourite in the what was a close-fought final.

However, the Danish super heavyweight used all of his experience to beat his opponent to win the gold.

Ciuma was another Romford man to reach a final, having beating a Portuguese hope on points in the semi-finals.

However, Ciuma came up just short in his bout against a Spanish prospect as he lost on points, but still collected a silver medal for his efforts.

Team captain Olla had a long route to glory, which started with a quarter-final against an Irish rival, who the Romford man beat on points.

In the semi-finals, Olla came up against a Portuguese fighter, and though the Romford man looked to have won every round, he was beaten on points.

However, that was still enough to see Olla collect a bronze medal from his trip to the Iberian Peninsula, as did Tinsbury.

The Romford hope headed to Portugal unbeaten in his six previous bouts, but suffered a points loss in his semi-final against a home hope.

The results from the Romford boxers meant the club took home one gold, a silver and two bronze medals from the event.

“It was an amazing achievement as our fighters beat three locals, two of whom were Portuguese champions,” said Claydon.

“It was the first ever international tournament for the Amateur Boxing Alliance of England, so all in all it was a very good tournament for all concerned.”
