Caruso was first on, boxing in the class two under-60kgs against last year's national Golden Gloves champion, Tommy Carr from Repton.

Saroye (class two, under-63kgs) was up against a tough East End boy from West Ham, Simon O'Driscoll.
O'Driscoll put Saroye on the back foot and took a majority decision.
The club went in the evening for Cambridge DC Boxing Club's star-studded evening with stars like Michael Watson and Errol Christie.
Lewis Healiss fought a hometown boy, Mat Sai, in another toe-to-toe bout and lost by a majority decision.
