Team England brought 14 boxers to Birmingham, with the group consisting of 8 men and 6 women. Of that group, 8 will return home with medals.
Leamington Spa’s Lewis Williams and Russian-born, Delicious Orie, who began his boxing career in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter gym at 19 years old, won the team’s two gold medals in their respective heavyweight (92kg) and super-heavyweight (92+kg) divisions.
Three other boxers reached the finals and won silver at the NEC Arena: minimumweight Demie-Jade Resztan, flyweight Kiaran MacDonald and lightweight Gemma Richardson. The remaining bronze medallists were flyweight Savannah Stubley in her first major competiiton, middleweight Lewis Richardson and light-heavyweight Aaron Bowen.
Frazer Clarke fights to secure boxing gold, after a hard fought contest in the super-heavyweight division and both competitors giving it their everything, a tremendous last round with an unaccountable tempo. Clarke is crowned with the gold medal with a unanimous point decision, with just one point in it. A tremendous performance, and they gave it everything, punch for punch.
