Posted on October 27, 2013 at 3:50 PM

Cheshunt Boxing Club will be in the headlines of this weeks Hertfordshire Mercury Newspaper for appointing a new Club Captain, Shellie Oliver, and for Senior Novices success! Here's the article:

CHESHUNT Boxing Club have appointed a female captain for the first time its history.

Twenty-three-old Shellie Oliver has been given the responsibility of leading and giving advice to fighters at the club .

She follows in the footsteps of past captains such as Phill Gill and recently turned professional Dave Leo.

Cheshunt head coach Mark Bliss said of the landmark decision: “There’s no one that deserves this more than Shellie.

“When she first came to the club she weighed in at 108kg and after all her hard work, she is now down to just 72kg.

“Everyone at the club respects Shellie and is held in very high esteem.”

Cheshunt Boxing Club enjoyed recent with Tom Harrison making his mark in the Senior ABA Novices in Oxford.

Harrison, aged 17, was boxing in his first senior bout. He was thrown in at the deep end against experienced 32-year-old Nate Canoville of Jubilee ABC.

The Cheshunt pugilist started the first round well, but his older and stronger opponent came into it in the second and third rounds.

However in his first venture over four rounds, Harrison finished the bout strongly to take a unanimous decision from the judges and claim the Home Counties Senior Novices ABA light middleweight championship title.

Cheshunt Boxing Club would like to congratulate Shellie Oliver on becoming Club Captain and would like to give their full support to Tom Harrison who is boxing in the next round of the Senior Novices over the upcoming weekend.
