There was double joy for the Henderson family at the National Schoolboy Championships as Kettering Amateur Boxing Club brothers Connor and Braydon both won titles in Feltham.

Braydon, at under-30kg, gained a unanimous victory against Alfie Supple from St Andrews ABC.

The 11-year-old boxed perfectly from round, landing screw shots and the perfect one-two down the middle, which Supple struggled to defend against.

Connor was also a unanimous winner in the under-38kg category as he defeated the experienced Teddy Lethbridge (Cheshunt).

The 13-year-old’s continuous switching stance confused his London opponent, who tried to keep up with the fast pace.

However, Connor’s relentless pressure and fast counter punching saw him through to the victory.
