DARLINGTON student Jack Edmonds is preparing for the boxing bout that could see him lift a national title.

Jack, who attends St Aidan’s Church of England Academy, off Hundens Lane, has won three fights, the most recent one in 30 seconds, and received a bye when his semi-final opponent withdrew before the bout, to reach the final of the ABA National Championship.

Already Northern Champion in the 30-32kg division, he is preparing to fight in the national final in Essex on March 12.

Jack, 11, said: “I have been boxing for five years. I saw it on the television and thought ‘that is what I want to do’.”

Jack, who trains every day and attends Darlington Boxing Club, said: “I really want to be a boxer.”

His favourite boxers are Joe Calzaghe and Mohammed Ali.
