Talented Alperton student wins the Best Boxer of the Night award

On Friday 16 November, Desharn, one of our year 10 students, participated in the prestigious annual London Mayor’s Cup Boxing competition and won not only his match but also the Best Boxer of the Night award. The London Mayor’s Cup is a top class boxing competition for amateurs welcoming all talented boxers in London. This year’s event took place at the Porchester Hotel in Central London.

Desharn is a very talented and hard-working student and we are really proud of his achievements. He’s won 17 matches so far and he has a real passion for boxing:

“I have been boxing now for nearly 5 years, from the age of 10, and I enjoy boxing very much. I am an amateur boxer and this is now my twentieth match. I have won 17 matches altogether. Each time I box I become stronger – physically and mentally – gaining confidence to achieve my goals and reach my full potential. I love boxing; it is my passion and my dream is to become a World Champion one day.” (Desharn)
