DEWSBURY-BASED boxer Ismail Khan has won a senior national title.
The fighter won the vacant 52kg English title at the Magna centre in Rotherham on Saturday.
Khan, who is a sports student at Bradford College and trains in their Boxing Academy as well as at the KBW gym in Dewsbury, beat Ryan Gibbons of Hull to take the honour.
The teenager has developed under the coaching of Bradford College’s boxing guru Mally McIver, a former professional boxer from Dewsbury, who was ringside in South Yorkshire at the weekend. “It is always good to see our boxers doing well, representing the academy and the region,” said McIver.
“There is a lot of talent in the academy and we look forward to many more successes.”
