Lewis bids to box clever for selection

LEWIS Scott became Newbiggin’s first senior boxer to be invited to an England selection camp last weekend when he travelled to Leeds before the England v Ireland competition.

Lewis stood out in his weight division, being praised by the England coach present.

The top two from the northern camp will go head-to-head with the southern top two next Friday, when the England rep will be chosen.

These camps are the perfect preparation for his light heavyweight title fight at Newbiggin on November 23.

Newbiggin’s Ben Rees, Jimmy Tyers and Kieran Robertson travelled with the Tyne Tees Wear team to Rotterdam to box against the Dutch national team this weekend. Ben stormed to a 28-11 victory, although Jimmy and Kieran both suffered controversial one-point defeats.

Newbiggin’s Ross Fuller takes on Consett’s Nathan Howey at Throckley’s Union Jack club on Wednesday.
