There were mixed emotions for two former Lion amateurs on a Sinfield Star promotion at York Hall on Saturday.

Middleweight William Webber and lightweight Louis Isaacs were both due for action at the iconic venue.

Of the pair, only Webber stepped into the ring as Isaacs scheduled bout was sadly called off.

The 20-year-old Webber took on Bulgarian rival Tsvetozar Iliev and picked up a comfortable points success, winning all four rounds in the process.

Isaacs, meanwhile, had been due to take on Dylan Draper, but was instead left with a free Saturday to contemplate.
