5:00pm Saturday 12th October 2013 in News
A YOUNG Brierley Hill boxer has won a place in Great Britain’s junior boxing squad after bagging an All England title.
Sports student Connor Jones, aged 17, has a string of titles including West Midlands Young Boxer of the Year and he is West Midlands Junior Amateur Boxing Association Champion.
He trains at the Lions Boxing Club in Brierley Hill where boxing academy students from Birmingham Metropolitan College get professional coaching from Great Britain squad coach, Bob Dillon.
Connor Jones said: “I have been boxing since I was six – visiting the Lions Boxing Club with my dad. I’m really pleased that the boxing academy allows me to continue to box alongside my studies – it’s the best of both worlds and I can’t wait to represent my country in the junior boxing squad.”
