Kings of the Ring

The May brothers are now looking forward to competing next year at the British Boxing Championships following their Gold and Silver medal haul recently.

After a long hard fought weekend boxing, Rory came home with a Silver medal and Nathan with a Gold!

Rory fought his way to the quarter finals and progressed through to the semifinals with a unanimous decision. However, in the final, Rory didn’t get the result he wanted against a local boy from Sweden, with two judges choosing him but the remaining three judges opting for the Swede.

On Saturday it was time for Nathan to have his first bout of the weekend, where he eased to victory after beating an Algerian boy on points.  Nathan was able to fend off a tough Albanian opponent, winning with a unanimous decision with all judges in favor of a win.

It is a great achievement for the brothers to arrive home with a Gold and Silver medal from the biggest Boxing Cup competition in Europe.  Well done!
