Thorpe conceded a majority points decision after being on the brink of a stoppage win in the dying moments of the second round.
Kai Osman was out of luck on his ring debut. He conceded a majority points decision to Jay Moore (Platinum), despite landing clean, straight punches throughout.
Jake Green also showed promise in his debut defeat to George Vernon (Wolverhampton). Green knocked Vernon's head guard off with a jab in the second round – but the Black Country boxer was a bit quicker to the punch for much of the fight and snatched a majority points verdict.
George 'Sticky' Pratt took a standing count in the last round of his points loss to Joe Turner (Huthwaite) and Joe Lesta was edged out by Daniel Vance (Corby Olympic).
Seniors Tirth Bassi and Martin Wardle dropped points decisions to Scott Cattell (Birmingham City) and Billy Adamson (Platinum) respectively.
