Our VLUK Joe Gallagher Boxing Campus has seen huge successes with two of their learners in particular. Firstly, Paige Howarth, who has medaled in 2 major championships in the last couple of weeks. The first championship was an international Box Cup in Sweden, The Golden Girls Box Cup where she won silver in the under 57kg category beating Laura Jakovleva from Latvia who is the current European Silver medalist and then went on to beat Celine Broccolo from Germany. Paige beat both girls unanimously to reach the final.
Last weekend Paige won the England Boxing Youth Championship, again in the under 57kg category. Paige was fortunate to get a straight final and beat Zaynah Casserly from Aston ABC via a split decision to win.
Secondly, Ella Thompstone also won the England Boxing Youth Championship, in the under 63kg category. Ella was fortunate to get a straight final and beat Macey Gardner from Arena ABC, Weston Counties. Ella won via unanimous decision.
Both learners have worked extremely hard to achieve these accomplishments and VLUK wish them every success in their future careers.
