Five Star youngster claims second schoolgirls title

Five Star’s Brook Eaton was crowned national champion after a unanimous points win over Kara Murray of Telford’s Len Woodhall BC.

The two had met a week earlier when boxing for England in a Three Nations event, with Eaton beaten, but coach Eddie Kelly was confident she would get her revenge in Rotherham.

He said: “We didn’t take it as a negative as I knew Brook was able to beat Kara as she didn’t really rise to the occasion in the Three Nations, she looked flat-footed and very tired.

“I could see ways of beating Kara which was the first things we worked on in the gym all week and Brook put in such a big effort in the training sessions from Monday to Friday and it showed on Sunday in the finals.”

Murray made a bright start in their showdown, but Eaton produced good footwork and timing, countering with strong shots to take the first round.

The Romford youngster maintained that momentum in the second, pushing Murray back on to the ropes with more good punches, and kept her at bay in the final round to earn the judges vote.

Kelly added: “I’m so proud of Brook and what she has accomplished in boxing so far. She’s a two-time national champion and has boxed for England three times, winning twice, and is still only in her third season.”

Eaton will be in action on the club’s dinner show at Chigwell’s Prince Regent Hotel on May 5, along with Taylor Vango, Bruce Parker, Brennan Humm, Sonny Ali, Alex O’Halloran, Shea Kappes, Lamar Douglas and Mahlia Garrigen.

The evening includes a four-course meal and tickets are on sale from the gym on Gooshays Drive, Harold hill on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings, from 6pm onwards.
