Torbay Weekly

A Torbay ABC boxer has boxed his way to the final of the National Schoolboy Championships of Great Britain.

Jed Baker, 14, who attends Teign School, Kingsteignton, follows on from his success of winning gold at the Rivera Box Cup last November.

Jed beat Lennox McKenna in the quarter-finals in Bristol. He then won his semi-final, beating Ricco Winston from Bridgewater Solvent, Manchester, to book his place in the final, which was held at the Vertu Motors arena, Newcastle.

Jed boxed the unbeaten William Ball, from the famous London club, Repton.

From the first bell Jed took the bout to his opponent.

Jed showed no fear against his much bigger and taller opponent, pushing forward at every opportunity, with almost every coach in attendance astonished that didn't get the decision to become the national champion.

Torbay ABC club is very proud of Jed's achievements.
