Teenage boxer Adam Morris has been selected for the Tri Nations England squad in June. This could lead him to the Olympics in two years’ time. 

Adam, 15, who fights out of Rawthorpe Amateur Boxing Club (RABC) in Milnsbridge, took part in the Junior National Boxing Championships losing in the final in London against Eddie Doherty.

Despite that defeat Adam could be on a journey which could take him to the Olympic games – a similar path followed by legendary fighter Amir Khan at the start of his career. 

Adam’s dad Paul, who is also chairman of RABC, said everyone was proud of Adam’s achievements and he would learn from the final defeat.

“Adam is a quick learner and only looks forward. He was at the perfect 42kg weight for the fight, he trained well and so he knows what he now needs to do going into June.” 

Adam will look to take on the very best from Scotland and Wales as he looks to impress the England boxing team coaches. 

Paul added: “It was great that they think Adam has a lot of talent. Yes he’s representing Huddersfield and Yorkshire but I’ve told him this is a huge deal to represent his country.

“Not many people in any sport get to do that and so I know he’ll be taking his training deadly serious from now until June.”
