The talented Veras Academy brothers will be in action in Barking this weekend eager to continue their fine form.

All three Veras brothers will go into the evening of amateur boxing bang in form after lots of success in Wolverhampton.

On day one, Luan, 14, picked up gold in the -60kg and silver in the open weight category.

13-year-old Liam followed this up with gold in the -42kg while Luca, 11, clinched gold in the -42kg competition.

A day later, Luan won gold in the -58kg, Liam won silver in the -44kg and Luca secured gold in the -40kg and silver in the 12-13 open weight category.
