VLUK Joe Gallagher Academy learner, Michael Evens, recently competed internationally in a Box Cup in Portugal. The Torneio Internacional Boxing Spirit WBC 2022, or WBC boxing spirit tournament is a 3 day tournament where the boxers are drawn against each other and required to box off. Michael competed in the 60kg weight category boxing twice to get to the final and winning Gold.
Following on from this Michael was then invited to compete against the Polish champion in Poland's capital Warsaw. Although Michael lost his consent this was a great experience for him to be able to travel to two different countries, over two different weekends and competing in two major competitions.
What an achievement for Michael. We wish him the best of luck in his future competitions.
