National Championships

Posted on

VLUK Joe Gallagher Academy are very proud of campus learner Leon Burns, who has recently won the National Youth Development Championships at 48kg. This national championship was held over several weekends between September and October. Leon has been working exceptionally hard to ensure he was ready for the competition.
Leon fought twice to win the national championship, boxing once in the semi final against Zain Malik from London, where he won via unanimous decision. He then went straight on to the final fight against Tom Watson from Yorkshire and, via a split decision in a close competitive contest, he won in the final.
