Twin Pat McCormack (both box for Birtley) made the light-welter decider by beating Darren Richardson in a cagey battle, while in the other 64 semis southpaw Alfie Price had too much skill for Daniel Wright.

The day’s first stoppage came at middleweight when Troy Williamson hit too hard for Ryszard Lewicki stopping him in round two. Also into the final is Jack Flatley, a unanimous victor over Dan Woledge in a bout that saw both men cut.
At light-heavyweight Joshua Buatsi was too strong for Bryce Goodridge and now meets Ashley Vanzie, who outworked southpaw Matthew Tinker in a punch-up.

Frazer Clarke continued his pursuit of the super-heavyweight title with a hard-fought win over Joshua Quailey and now in the final meets Natty Ngwenya, who outlasted Declan Fusco in a gruelling encounter.
