Jermaine Dhaiwayo

THE “clinical” Jermaine Dhaiwayo continued to impress under St Pancras ABC’s tutelage on Saturday when he picked up his second win in three outings for the club.

Appearing on the Five Star ABC Show in Romford, Essex, the 17-year-old, who weighed in at 58kg, outpointed Kieran Keen from West Ham ABC over three two-minute rounds.

“He started off nervous but quickly settled down and started picking his punches,” said CJ Hussein, the head coach at St Pancras ABC in Kentish Town.

“He fought a very intelligent fight.

“In the end he won via a 4-1 split decision but it looked like an even more convincing performance to me.”
