LEWIS Williams continued his preparations for next month’s World Youth Championships with another victory to be crowned English Youth Heavyweight Champion In Birmingham.

The 18-year-old went toe-to-toe with old foe Brandon Jones who beat Williams on his home show two years ago.

This time around it was Williams who got his revenge last Friday as the Leamington boxer continues to demonstrate his dominance in the heavyweight division.

Despite nursing a slight shoulder injury, Williams controlled the fight from a distance and worked his jab to good effect.




The improvement from two years ago to now was there for all to be seen and Williams went on to record a victory by unanimous decision.

Williams will take confidence from the win as he travels to Ireland this week for a ten-day intensive training camp in preparation for the World Youth Championships in Russia.


There was further good news for Leamington-based Clearys ABC after Danny Quartermaine was selected onto the England Talent Programme.

The selectors were impressed by Quartermaine’s potential during a recent assessment and he now follows in the footsteps of Williams and Morgan Answell who are also on the programme.

Paul Bennett, England Boxing men’s lead coach, said: “Our aim is to identify, select and develop the best boxers into future world-class athletes.

“We provide the facilities, expert coaching and support to help boxer’s become the best.

“In addition, boxers will be educated on all performance parameters alongside technical and tactical development through practice.”
