Bromley boxer has pro dreams as he claims national amateur title

Bromley’s Cameron O’Callaghan won the Senior Novice National Amateur Championships at the start of December.

The 19-year-old, from 2BX Boxing Club, beat Franklin Sanchez from London Military Boxing Grove Park on a unanimous win to become U75kg champion.

O’Callaghan trains at the 2BX Boxing Club in Hayes and is also now one of their coaches. He has ambitions to become a professional.

The club has a dedicated team of coaches with more than 70 carded amateur boxers and a stable of professional boxers.

It is all too often highlighted about young adults getting involved in crime and gang culture – especially from the Turpington Estate that O’Callaghan hails from. He has been a role model to many younger boxers.

The club is working with several young teenagers and adults who have been expelled from mainstream schools and they are seeing great results through their boxing system.

Lara Day, the club’s welfare officer, said: “Cameron is a product of the 2BX Boxing Club system and this win shows what anyone can achieve.”

    You used this as a way to talk on gang culture which was clearly the intention from the get go, instead should’ve talked on the person the article is about more which seems to me more like a more propaganda aimed towards the black/half cast community which ain’t a bad thing, it’s just how it been worded seemed less like a congratulation and more like an aim towards promoting your paper as an add on and towards a party fuelling.
