Throughout October 2015, 250 boys and men competed in the Welsh Amateur Boxing Association’s (WABA) National Novice Championships.
The championships culminated on Sunday 1st November, when Alway House’s, Lloyd, contested and won the national title for 11 year-old boys in the 32-34Kg category. The fight was contested over 3 intense rounds. Boxing requires a great deal of commitment and determination. It takes a lot of courage to step into a ring and go one-on-one against another human being. In order to compete, one not only has to be physically strong but to have mental toughness and composure too. Lloyd proved to have all of these attributes.
Representing Trelewis ABC, Lloyd entered the finals with a 5-1 win to loss record. Facing Lloyd was a tough competitor from Silurian ABC with a very similar record. The fight promised to be a classic and so it turned out, but not in the way most people had anticipated. From start to finish, Lloyd dominated his opponent, boxing with control and determination, reading his opponent well and picking his shots wisely. Lloyd out-thought, out-muscled and out-endured his opponent. The decision, when it came, was a unanimous formality and delivered Lloyd a 6-1 record. Well done Lloyd.
The next step: 2016’s Open championship which may give Lloyd an opportunity to box for Wales.
