AFTER moving down to light-welterweight, Conor Loftus has a point to prove. He will be eager to compete in the GB Championships that are due to take place at the EIS in Sheffield on December 7 (Tickets are on sale now, priced £10 at http://www.ticketsdirect. org.uk/gbchamps/entryform.aspx).
GB Boxing’s Performance Director, Rob Mccracken, explained: “This event is a great opportunity for the GB Boxing coaches and me to see some of the talent we have coming through and assess the boxers in an intense, competitive situation.
“We are only in the first year of the Tokyo Olympic cycle so there is still a lot of opportunity for boxers to force their way into the GB Boxing squad and then into contention for the 2020 Olympics. Several of the boxers that competed at the last Olympics didn’t join our squad until half way through the Rio cycle, so the door is open.”
