Jake a real knock-out in Rocky

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

WHIT­SUN­DAY boxer Jake Brown has KO’d crowds in Rock­hamp­ton at the week­end, win­ning a Cen­tral Queens­land ti­tle belt.

The 16-year-old Whit­sun­day Chris­tian Col­lege stu­dent won his fight on Satur­day, tak­ing down Bri­bie Is­land op­po­nent Jessie Bai­ley on a unan­i­mous points de­ci­sion.

Jake, who has won the Aus­tralian Am­a­teur Ti­tle two years run­ning, im­pressed all in at­ten­dance in Rock­hamp­ton, claim­ing the Fighter of the Night award for the best ef­fort out of all 31 bouts. Jake’s fa­ther Carl said the fight was “tough” but a well de­served re­sult for his son who trains three times a week, spars on Satur­day morn­ings and plays AFL to boot.

His train­ing also in­cludes ses­sions with An­ton Zafir and the Whit­sun­day Mar­tial Arts Club, which Carl be­lieves has steeled Jake for suc­cess.

Jake’s next chal­lenge is the Queens­land Ti­tles in Cairns on Septem­ber 19-21.
