Ethan makes it two champs in the family

HILLFIELDS boxer Ethan Moore is making sure winning titles becomes a family tradition.

The 14-year-old claimed an England Boxing National Schools Championship title at Crawley in Sussex on May 19 to emulate his older brother Jude.

Ethan, who attends Mangotsfield School, boxed his semi-final the previous day against the strong West Ham boxer Filip Dimov in the class B under 72k category.

A classy boxing performance saw a unanimous win for Downend Boxing Club's Ethan and with it, a place in the final.

Standing in the way of a national title was old foe Jack Blencowe, of Kingfisher boxing club in Great Yarmouth.

The pair had previously contested a close contest in Great Yarmouth, with Jack taking a points win.

After three all-action close rounds, the judges decision was split but the title came back to Bristol.

Jude, 16, won his Under 60kg title at the National Junior Championships earlier in the year, and Ethan now seeks to represent his country like his brother in the Three Nations championship on June 8 and 9.
