Preye Ozeke dominated his top-of-the-bill heavyweight clash with potential Oxford Blue George Keelan in Oxford Boxing Academy’s Christmas dinner tournament at the Kassam Stadium.

A sweeping right hand rocked the student within ten seconds of the start to prompt a standing count.

Keelan survived, but shortly into round two he was upended by another right hand to prompt referee Sandy Mathewson to call a halt. George Stevens finished his night’s work even quicker as he saw off Welwyn’s Andy Henry in less than a round.

A looping right hand stunned the Hertfordshire light welterweight to prompt a standing count, then a left-right combination yielded the same result as referee Liam Harkin stepped in.

Ben Kaluza had the edge on power and precision as he won his welterweight clash with Welsh rival Kerry Jenkins.

Light middleweight Tom Mortimer had his ring baptism against fellow debutant Feraz Sayed, from Oxford University.

And he started to edge ahead during the second round after connecting with a four-punch cluster that prompted a standing count.

Sayed had no complaints when Mortimer had his arm raised at the end of hostilities.

And southpaw Ali Giri made it a treble against the students when outpointing David Lee in their featherweight clash.

Steve Rees used his extra height to full effect to outbox Welwyn’s David Walker-Mitchell. Malcolm West sought to impose his authority early on against potential Blue Mark Wu as the student wobbled from a series of hook combinations, but the Oxford University boxer got the nod on the narrowest of split decisions.

Light heavyweight Mark Hilton was unlucky not to win his clash with Matt Moore – another possible member of this year’s Varsity contingent.

After two close rounds, he seemed to have more in the tank at the end, but lost by a slim margin.

Light middleweight Adam Howard proved unable to match the accuracy of Welwyn’s Wayne Smith and lost on points. And Simon Sutherland found himself on the wrong side of the verdict following his light-heavyweight clash against Andy Francis from the same gym.

Middleweight Sam Palk was embroiled in a pulsating battle with Slough’s Harry Killick before losing by a slim margin.

Teenager Declan Townsend had been hampered by a virus ahead of his featherweightbout with Welwyn’s Jake Powell and lost on points.
