Bout of the night contestants: Nathan Hall and Mason Smale (right).

CASEY DE LA MARE won for the sixth straight time to seal a 6-4 win for the Guernsey squad over the Home Counties at St Pierre Park.
With the match in the balance at 5-4 in Guernsey’s favour, the top-of-the-bill middleweight contest lived up to its billing and a split decision that went against Babatunji Ogiunniya ensured that the home squad came out on top.
Ogiuinniya, who was introduced as ‘Mr T’, proved to be a very tough test for the local 18-year-old, and the majority verdict was no great surprise for the home crowd.
There were also good wins for the improving Tomaz Kot, who won his heavyweight contest against Jamie Smith on a unanimous decision, Jimmy Lesbirel, Nathan Green, Sam Masterman and Jake Fletcher.
