Attleborough Boxing Club’s Connor Holloway missed out on Senior Novice Under-56kg National title glory after suffering a final defeat to Doncaster Boxing Academy’s Colliston Edwards at the historic York Hall in Bethnal Green, London at the weekend.

After struggling in the first round, Holloway responded with powerful punches throughout the second, resulting in a very close round.

However, it proved too little too late for the Thetford-based boxer as he was out powered by his opponent in the final round as he clinched a unanimous decision, leaving the Holloway to settle for silver.

Head coach Jon Dennis said: “Connor did exceptionally well. He has only been competing for a year, so to reach the national final was a superb accomplishment. It just wasn’t his night.”
