BOXING: ENGLAND coaches are set to run the rule over three boxers at Clearys next month with Morgan Ansell, Lewis Williams and Danny Quartermaine all keen to impress.
It looks set to be a big year for Williams who recently represented England at the World Youth Boxing Championships in Russia.
The 18-year-old narrowly missed out on winning what would have been a deserved medal and he now has his sights firmly set on earning a Great Britain call-up and winning the senior ABA Championships.
Quartermaine won the Elite Midland ABA title last year and is widely seen as one of the best amateur boxers in the country, while Ansell’s reputation continues to grow year-on-year.
“Now having three boxers with England will give them a chance to see what we are doing and how we coach,” said coach Edwin Cleary.
“It’s a great chance for the rest of our squad a chance for them to preform and show case themselves.
“Having a conversation just after Christmas I was told the coach is looking to help push our boxers, have a look at any others we may have and help with Lewis’ up and coming GB assessment.”
Elsewhere, the Elite Youth Championships get underway this week with 17-year-old Jake Finch in action over three rounds against the very best youth boxers in the country.
