The boys from the Extreme Boxing Wrecking Crew were up to take on the stash of titles. Here’s how Liam, Max and Spencer went:
Liam “The Devil” Pope weighed in and focused on getting the Gold on Sunday, unfortunately losing on points and coming away with the Silver Gloves title.
Liam fought in the finals for golden gloves this afternoon, he fought a very strategic fighter and lost on points. He got the silver for his weight and fought with heaps of heart. ” – Trainer, Hemi Niha
…Thank you everyone for the support! Especially Hemi Niha and Keena Hull, you two are the back bone of us boxers and do above and beyond for myself and the boys! I think this might be my last Amateur fight as this has tipped the scales and it’s made my mind up that I want to pursue professional boxing” ~ Liam Pope
Max Loughran weighed in for his first boxing bout for the 52kg Junior Male division, however the opponent pulled out 2 hours before they were supposed to fight. Max walked through and received the Golden Gloves title. Disappointed he didn’t get to fight and earn the medal, we say he definitely earned it for his fight prep and training dedication.
I also had the honor to put the golden gloves medal round his neck that he won as an [unopposed] boxer in the 52 junior male division. He has earned this. Although he never [fought] for it he definitely trained for it” -Trainer, Hemi Niha
Spencer Parton who was ‘pumped and ready’, winning his first round on Thursday at the tournament taking him through to the semi’s on Friday. He fought with heart but unfortunately didn’t take the win. Awesome efforts Spencer!
A great effort from Spencer tonight unfortunately we did not get the win but he fought a very tough fight against a fighter from new Caledonia…He represented our gym and him self and his family with the honour and determination and the courage that it deserves ” -Trainer, Hemi Niha
