Kellan boxes clever in championship

Kellan Wood has been crowned East Midlands Box Cup champion.

Having started boxing at the age of six, almost eight years ago, it was inevitable that Kellan Wood's hard work and dedication would see him achieve gold medals in his sport. He trains at Highfields Boxing Gym, managing to fit in three nights of training a week, alongside studying for his GCSEs.

In July this year, Kellan entered the East Midlands Box Cup, which was held in Grantham. He lined up in the 50-52kg Category B. His first fight took place on the Saturday, and victory in this saw him return on the Sunday for the title fight, in which he was again successful. Kellan was awarded a winner's t-shirt and a gold medal.

His boxing doesn't stop there, and he now has his sights set on the forthcoming Yorkshire Championships. We wish Kellan every success with his boxing in the future.
