The national Development championships take place in Banbury
SOME potential stars for the future won their first national titles as the England Boxing Development championships concluded. The finals took place from October 27-28 in Banbury.
Well-established clubs delivered champions. Repton, for instance, had Class B heavyweight William Hamilton and Class B superheavyweight Arnold Obadai, as well as Juniors Hamza Patel and David Brzezinnski.
But clubs less well known for producing titlists also had winners. Fight For Peace 18-year-old Dylan Oke unanimously outscored Brad Mcardle (District Youth) in the Class A Senior 69kgs final, and Oxford University had a national champion in lightweight Lydia Welham in Senior Class A, as well.
