George Sheppard and Joel Cameron, pictured left and right respectively, both won their finals representing 2BX Boxing Club Hayes Bromley.
Sheppard defeated Danny Hughes (Bracknell) in his final with Cameron also doing the business against Charlie Ellis (Gator ABC). Rocky Day lost to Buster Davies (Barnstaple) in a final.
Gerry Connors and Frankie Waitson reached the semi-final stage while Gerry Connors got to the last eight.
Sheppard has autism and his parents Mike and Jo said: “2BX ABC and the London ABA who support autism have given him a platform to become more confident.
“He has tried several sports and not been able to participate fully or been given the opportunity be able to compete.
“His twin brother Harry, who boxes for Repton ABC, has supported George throughout his boxing journey.”
2BX has more than 60 licensed boxers and is run by volunteers. It costs £80,000 per year just to break even.
