And the gold medallists from the Thursday group were Adem and Sami Serrten, Julius Tait, Joseph Higham, Kian Farrell, Daragh Murray, Harry Power, Bleau Tucker, George Simcox, Fabian and Nathan Rychlewski, Chace Harrison, O’Shea Campbell, Zachery and Charlie Tumbridge, Ezra Worrell and Dillon Schiavo.

The ‘most improved boxer of the term’ for the Tuesday class went to Leo Batson,

The ‘best boxer of the term’ was awarded to Leon Flanagan who followed up the success of his most improved boxer in the previous term by claiming the top prize.

Club manager Reggie Hagland said: “He’s putting in a great effort in all the classes and has already been involved in a couple of inter-club sparring events recently. Hopefully one to watch out for.”

The ‘most improved boxer of the term’ for the Thursday group was awarded to Dillon Schiavo whilst Julius Tait, who has previously been very close on a few occasions, finally claimed ‘best boxer of the term’.

He is one of the few original participants from the first ever class in 2015 and Hagland said: “Julius stood out the most during sparring in the last class. He seems to be very confident again and hopefully he can go further on from here.”

IBC have announced that due to an influx of infants joining the club, they will now run the classes on an extra evening a week.

The classes, which include basics to boxing, skipping, pad work and sparring, will start from Wednesday, April 19 between 4:30pm and 5:30pm.

There are a maximum of 24 children per class and a waiting list may apply for new applicants.

Infants can only participate in one class per week and the classes take place during school term-time only.

All term fees must be paid in advance to avoid risk of losing place.
