May 01 2018

BRISTOL has a new national boxing champion in 15-year-old Ellouise Challenger of Downend Boxing Club.

Ellouise beat  Loleta Spencer, from Wellingborough, in the 70k class at the Magna Centre, Rotherham.

Ellouise said afterwards: "I was so happy I cried in the ring, I’m just over the moon."

Mum Nicola was equally pleased, and thanked the coaches at the club, which is now based at the Harry Crook Centre in Fishponds, for all they do to encourage young talent.

Ellouise is now part of the national talent development programme, which could see her represent England in the future.
