MATCHBOROUGH teenage boxing champion Lewis Maunder is in action at the world famous Alexandra Palace in London this weekend (June 19-21) in the Haringey Box Cup.

The Box Cup is Europe’s biggest tournament and sees over 500 boxers from all over the continent compete for the coveted gold medal.

Sixteen-year-old Maunder travels alongside his team-mates from Jewellery Quarter Boxing Club in Birmingham and will be giving his all to emerge triumphant.

Maunder has already achieved great success this season in winning the Birmingham & District Junior Championships and also gaining runner-up spot in the Midlands Junior Championships.




The talented Redditch boxer is in a good run of form and goes into the Box Cup with a second round stoppage win from his last contest under his belt.

If you are interested in competing in amateur boxing you can contact Jewellery Quarter Boxing Club via Facebook or call coach Mick Maguire on 07812 034571.
