DEAN Dodge's bid for National Novice Championship glory is over after he lost out to Norwich's Tommy Burling on the judge's decision.

Troubled by a bloodied nose, the 19-year-old lightweight from Yeovil Amateur Boxing Club was defeated by the Eastern Counties champion while challenging for a place in the tournament's final four.

Sixteen-year-old Yeovil ABC prospect Liam MacMenemy beat Luke Brown by unanimous decision in Portsmouth.
