Boxing: Levi wins national champs for second year

CHADWELL St Mary Boxer Levi Lee 14yrs 57kg won the National Schoolboy Championships for the second year running.

Lee boxed against Connor Ward from Northside A.B.C (Manchester) on Sunday 3rd March at Everton Sports Centre in Liverpool.

Youngster Levi Lee will now go on to box for England in the three nations Championships to be held sometime in April in Scotland.

Team mates twins Jay Healy 42kg and Jake Healy 40kg both lost their bouts in the semi finals of the competition held at the Charles Dickens Centre in Portsmouth.

Jake Healy lost to J Khan of Repton Boys Club on a very tight majority decision and brother Jay came out against Henry Turner of Repton Boys Club also on a majority decision.

Head Coach Scot Johnston was aware that the judges on the day were clearly not in favour of the Essex Boxers so he instructed Lee not to win on a points decision as things were clearly not in favour of the club as he believed both Jay and Jake had done enough to secure themselves a place in the finals.

Lee was not going to leave anything to chance so he went out and stopped his opponent Eddie McDonagh from Hooks A.B.C in the first round ensuring that his place was safe in the finals of the competition.
