After attending two university interviews at the start of the week,  I finished my half term by boxing in the Youth ABA National Championships. My first bout was in the semi final - Saturday 18th February. Each bout consists of three rounds of three minutes, and I came away with the win (and a place in the finals) after winning all 3 rounds. The next day I fought in the finals. I lost the bout on a split decision but I am pleased with my performance nonetheless. Yet from this experience came even more opportunities; a chance to represent England in the Tri Nations championship and the opportunity to attend the European Selection camp in Sheffield the following weekend.


That is how I then spent the weekend of 24th-26th February. I arrived on the Friday just in time to catch Anthony Joshua finishing his training in the GB boxing gym. Yet after such an unbelievable moment, the training began. 3 Days of intense training and assessment all towards the aim of being selected for the European championships in May. I know I put 100% into the training over the weekend and hopefully I can move onto the next stage. However, whatever the decision I know I am going to represent England in April which is - on its own - a whole new level to my boxing career.

NAGBC & Western Counties Champion

We have been sponsoring Beth now for a couple of years along with other local business's Curio Junction & Kaya Gallery. We are very proud to say we now  have a champion  

We asked beth a bit about herself.

My name is Bethany Warne, a local girl from Ham ward, and I am a boxer who trains at Devonport Amateur Boxing Club. I dedicate a lot of my time to training at and the boxing gym, maintaining my fitness through running outside of training times. As well as this, I help to teach and develop the younger kids who train at our gym, so as you can tell I am very passionate about the sport. In the last boxing season, I managed to make my way to the semi final of the Junior ABAs (along the way becoming the Western Counties Champion,) but in the current season I have come on and stepped up which led to me becoming the NABGC female national champion at 57kg (in class B.) To get to where I am has taken (and will continue to take) a lot of time and effort but I have had the support of Norpro training to help me along the way; which I have been entirely grateful for during the last 2 and a half years. Not only do they support me by attending my fights and always believing in me, but they help provide all my essential kit I need to train and succeed.
