P Stevenage boxer Terry Holmes is through to the semi-finals of the junior ABAs.
They will be staged at Everton Park Leisure Centre, Liverpool, this Saturday.
The 15-year-old won his quarter-final against Graversham boxer John Cramer at Merlins nightclub on the Isle of Sheppey.
His usual all-out attacking style proved too much for Cramer who was stopped in the second round.
Bradley Evans (under-54kgs, class six) will join him in the semis on Merseyside as he received a walkover at the quarter-final stage.
Sixteen-year-old Harry Marshall lost his quarter-final against the vastly more experienced Levi Smith from the Ashford club in Kent.
Smith had the better of the first two rounds before Marshall almost nicked the fight in a pulsating third and final round.
