YOUNG fighter Flynn Clark has made the Corner Inlet Boxing Club proud, bringing home gold at the Australian Titles recently.
Representing Victoria alongside fellow Corner Inlet fighter Jarvis Bindloss, Flynn competed at his first nationals in the 32kg schoolboy division at Gold Coast.
He had a great fight against Queensland’s Ghabriell Barrett in the final, with both boys using all the punches in their arsenal.
In the end, Flynn won on a unanimous points decision and left with the gold medal around his neck.
Later that day, Jarvis competed in the 52kg schoolboy division against Queensland’s Ahwong Lokene.
He started the first round slowly, but picked up the pace in the second and third rounds, catching his opponent with big body shots followed by great combinations to the head.
After giving his all, Jarvis walked away with a silver medal on a split decision.
Corner Inlet Boxing Club coaches Brad Anderson and Scott Bindloss were incredibly proud of their young boxers’ efforts.
“These two boys did a fantastic job representing Victoria and our gym,” Scott said.
“It’s so rewarding to see the smiles on their faces after their bouts and we couldn’t be prouder.
“We now look to the Golden Gloves later in the year we’ve got a couple of fighters getting ready for their first fights.”
It’s been a busy time for the club, with Jarvis Bindloss and Flynn and Jay Clark flying to Hobart as part of the Victorian team in April.
The club had nine fighters attend a two-day training camp at Warrnambool, with Jake Mackin fighting in an exhibition there on the Saturday night.
Jarvis, Flynn and Jay also competed in Adelaide recently and the club held a sparring day at the Leongatha gym for all Gippsland clubs which was very well attended.
