Viewpark Ameteur Boxing Club enjoyed a double celebration when two of their young fighters struck gold at the Scottish championships.

Daniel Allan (15) added to his existing Western district title by winning the Scottish gold for the second time in 2 years.

He fought off William McLean of Northwest BC in his semi-final then defeated Matt Cunningham of East Lothian BC in the final of the 63kg, year 98 category.

Daniel goes to Cardinal Newman High School in Bellshill.

Craig also added to his Western district gold by winning the Scottish title in the 66kg, year 98 category, defeating Martin Lawrence from Sparta BC in a straight final.

The championships took place at Tollcross Sports Centre in Glasgow.

Daniel and Craig will now compete in a final eliminator to see if they can compete for the GB championships which will be held in Wales later this year.

Tickets for Viewpark ABC’s home show, on Saturday, May 10, went on sale this week.
