Two title for Empire Boxing’s Savannah Stubley

A young boxer has proved she can pack a punch in competition after claiming two top titles.

Savannah Stubley, who trains at Blyth’s Empire School of Boxing, was not only content with getting a national title under her belt at the schoolgirl finals in Sheffield a few weeks ago.

But she has also become the first girl to win a Three Nations Championship Gold medal after being selected to box for her country.

“The Mighty Atom”, as she has been dubbed by coaches, headed to Swansea for the competition at the weekend, facing a Welsh girl on Saturday and another on Sunday.

The first bout proved a stern test for Savannah, but the longer the contest went, it became clear that she had got her tactics spot on and came away a comfortable winner.

Less than 24 hours later she boxed beautifully against her second opponent, displaying skills that delighted her team.

The Blyth girl had produced two stunning victories by way of unanimous points.

Empire Head Coach Les Welsh said: “Everyone at the club has been working flat out with Savannah and the coaching team should also take great encouragement from their performances in producing a very fine girl boxer.

“I have explained to Savannah that this is just the beginning. I can predict great things for Savannah for it was not only the victories which excited everyone, it was the way she did it.

“We would all like to say congratulations to Savannah, and for the town of Blyth to celebrate in the fact we have a real talent coming through.”
