Spennymoor Town Mayor and Consort, Cllrs Clive and Liz Maddison congratulate Spennymoor’s boxers on their recent MTK Box Cup success at Penrith.

Spennymoor Boxing Academy took a team of four boxers, Alex Jansen, Bradley Smith, Danny Grainger and Macy Gallone to compete in the prestigious MTK Box Cup Penrith recently with all four reaching their respective finals.

First up were Alex and Bradley who endured hard bouts in their semi finals, but both came away with the win to reach the finals the following day alongside Danny and Macy.

Alex was again first up on Sunday and boxed his way to the silver medal.

Next were Bradley and Danny who were both returning as defending champions.

Again both lads gave extremely gritty performances and after three testing rounds each, both were again declared MTK Box Cup champions.

Last to box was Macy Gallone, who is a national champion.

She was very quickly out of her corner and stopped her opponent in the first round.

Coach Vicki Hodgson said: “It was fantastic to have the mayor and his consort visit the the academy to congratulate our junior squad on their three golds and a silver.

“They will be returning in 2020 to defend their titles.

“All of the coaches are extremely proud of our boxers and their achievements in Penrith.”
