MATTHEW Neilson’s second full international trip with the England Senior boxing squad was tinged with disappointment after he suffered a pair of points defeats.

The Tom Hill ABC fighter was edged out by top Canadian light heavyweight Mitch Hunt in both the Ken Goff Memorial Classic and the Mayor’s Cup as the England squad travelled to Regina in remote central Canada.

The home fighters dominated the competition with just five English victories from 15 bouts.

Conisbrough’s Neilson is likely to return to the ring on Friday night as Tom Hill ABC host a show at Balby Carr Sports Academy.

His club–mates Adam Jones, Connor Kelsall, Josh Kelsall, Declan Rankine and Pairas Hale are all scheduled to compete.

Entry is £10 adults, £5 juniors accompanied by adults. Doors open at 7pm with boxing starting around 8pm.
