The latest boxing news from Hackney

Hackney lightweight Jeffrey Ofori earned a seventh straight win in the pro ranks by beating Luke Fash at York Hall on Saturday.

The 28-year-old had been due to face Hamo Aperjan, but the Czech boxer withdrew from the bout with Fash stepping in as his replacement.

Ofori had his opponent on the back foot from the start, making good use of his stiff left jab and catching Fash with rights over the top.

In round three, Ofori began to unload and hit his rival with plenty of powerful blows, but Fash somehow managed to stay on his feet.

However, with the 28-year-old continuing to dominate in the fourth, referee Lee Every intervened to bring an end to the bout.

Ofori can look forward to a swift return to the ring when he looks to claim his first strap when challenging Jumanne Camero for the Southern Area title on September 15.

The fight for the Southern Area belt will take place on a Mickey Helliet show at York Hall.
