Afewee Boxing Club saw its first female national boxing champion crowned this weekend at the Magna Centre in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.
Junior boxer Vivien Parsons, 14, won the England Boxing ‘National Junior Cadet title’ at 57kg, defeating her opponent from Leeds by unanimous points decision. Vivien becomes the Brixton based clubs’ second national champion in their 3-year existence as a boxing club, after male junior boxer Joel Joseph won the same accolade at 80kg in April last year.
The club continues to thrive and bring in many young people from the local community, catering for all levels and abilities and instilling the importance of health, fitness, discipline and focus both in and out the ring.
