PADDY BRENNAN was full of praise for his two Tenbury Wells boxers after they stole the show at a recent international event.

Elizabeth Williams, 30, and 15-year-old Sam Holroyd were both on the card for the England v Ireland event held at Birmingham Moseley Rugby Club.

The annual show, which pits the best of the English amateur boxers against their Irish counterparts, attracted a crowd of almost 600.

Williams beat previously undefeated Sarah Crehan in their 72kg bout whilst Holroyd stopped Callum Chappell in the first round of their 66kg fight.

“For two boxers from Tenbury Wells to get on that show was incredible,” said Brennan, who helps troubled youngsters at his Boxing Academy near Tenbury.

“Elizabeth absolutely destroyed her opponent for three rounds and was rewarded with the fight of the night.

“Sam was back in the ring for the first time in three years but he never lets me down and he was the only boxer all night with a stoppage.

“These are two Tenbury Wells boxers going on to the big stage and making a big statement.”

Brennan predicts big things for the duo after their impressive performances in Moseley.

He added: “Liz might be going professional next year.

"Her weight category is wide open at the moment and Liz can hold her own against anybody.

“Sam is a southpaw so is tough to face, he punches incredibly hard and is a fantastic kid.

"Who knows what the future holds.”
