A first for JC’s Amateur Boxing Club on Jackson Street, as 16 year-old Jasmine Davies went into the history books as a National Champion!
It started in Dublin with Gold in the Esker Cup beating an Italian in the Semi, and a local favourite in the final.
In the final Jazza stopped her opponent in the 1st round with a powerful backhand, leaving onlookers simply lost for words.
And then on to Banbury, Oxfordshire where Jasmine delighted her townsfolk of St Helens, and all the traveling faithful from JC’s, as she became their first ever National Champ!
Jazza beat her opponent in the final with supreme work rate, never letting up, and winning with a stoppage in the final round.
Ste Birch, her coach, paid tribute to the young star, stating that ‘Jasmine works incredibly hard in the gym, her discipline exemplary with daily runs, and her enthusiasm is inspiring.’
Jasmine Davies only recently turned 16, and astonishingly has only been boxing for 12 months.
On Friday 29th November JC’s ABC present a night of amateur boxing at the Mercure Hotel in St Helens Town Centre. Flyer with more info can be found below
