Taylor is a ring star
2018 was a superb year for a promising Cambuslang boxer.
By November talented Taylor McMahon, aged 10, had won THREE titles.
He had just lifted the 34kg schoolboy title at the Scottish Novice Championships in Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility, which was added to the Western District 31kg belt won back in February, along with the Scottish Schools 31kg Open Championships.
The brilliant brawler, a pupil at St Charles’Primary, credited his coaches at O’Neil’s ABC in Westburn for his success.
Head coach Andy Clayton offered high praise for Taylor, saying:“Taylor has already achieved more in his short life than most of us will hope to in our own lifetimes.”
Taylor also wrote his name in the history books by becoming O’Neil’s youngest champion when he won the Western District 31kg title.
With an outstanding record of 10 wins in 12, the youngster raved about the team at O’Neils.
He said:“I have great coaches. They support me a lot and have helped me to believe in myself.
“I love being in the ring and go in believing I’ll win every fight”.
Mum Danielle said:“He absolutely loves his boxing. He grew up watching it with his dad and was desperate to join a club.
“He has been at the club for 18 months now and feels so at home there. The club has a great atmosphere. It’s more like a family and he thrives on it.
“We are so grateful to the coaches.”
