PRIORY Park boxer Coree Clarke is celebrating national title glory.

The talented Birmingham fighter, 21, secured success at the National Association of Boys and Girls Club Boxing Championship last month.

Clarke beat opponent Patrick Allen-Cripps from Harwich Boxing Club in the final in Manchester to bring the 86kg Class D title back to the Black Country.

Priory coach Warren Davis said: "He went there with no pressure really but did really well.

"We were confident in the final because his opponent came up in weight had he'd dropped down.

"It was his overall aggression and speed that made the difference and it's another good step for him."

Clarke will now look to test himself further when he heads to the England Boxing Elite National Championship in the new year.

Meanwhile, there was also success at the championship for deadly duo Kelsey Oakley and Mia Holland.

The Priory girls were in action two days later in Bridlington on December 1.

Oakley bagged 50kg Class A victory while Holland had to settle for silver after narrowly missing out on split decision in the 52kg Class A final.

The pair, both 14, maintained their fine form when competing at the inaugural Winter Boxing Cup last weekend.

Oakley again came away with the win but Holland once more missed out on a split decision after taking the chance to fight at 54kgs a day after her original 52kg showing.

Davies added: "It was great experience for them both.

"Kelsey again won with a nice performance. Mia took the chance to fight the next day when a lot of fighters would have licked their wounds and gone home. It shows the attitude she has got."
