Gold in the ring

STRATFORD’S Max Reeves has won the junior under 16 57 kilogram category at the Australian Boxing Championships on the Gold Coast.

Bottom age in his category, the 15-year-old defeated Canberra’s Lorenzo Daly in the final with the third round technical knock-out.

To advance to the final, Reeves overcame West Australian Mac Turner after all three judges awarded him the semi-final bout.

Reeves earned his spot at the national championships after winning the state title in February.
