PJ Stubbs, 19, took part in his 16th fight at the Royal Hall in Harrogate, bidding to retain his ABA Yorkshire open age heavyweight belt.
He beat Joseph Wilkinson, 19, in a unanimous points decision.
PJ, who is now a member of staff at Rossett having completed his BTEC in Sport last summer, said: It was great to be able to defend my title and retain the belt again.
It was a hard fight – three lots of three-minute rounds – so I was really pleased with the result.
I’m looking forward to having a short break before my next challenge which is the second stage of GB trials and I’ll be training hard for that.
PJ started boxing aged 14 – but his boxing career was thwarted at an early stage when he dislocated his hip in a skiing accident. A year later, he was back in the ring as a member of Harrogate Boxing Club, based in Starbeck.
Rossett’s Director of Sports Studies, Mark Fenton, said: We’re incredibly proud of PJ and the hard work he has put in to his training.
He showed a lot of discipline when he was working towards his exams alongside competing in the ring. That determination has continued since he joined us as a Teaching Assistant and we’re very pleased that it is paying off in all areas of his work and sport.
