FOUR local boxers competed in the recent Eastern District 
Championships, bringing home three gold and one silver medal to Denbeath Amateur Boxing Club.

First to take to the ring was 15-year-old Nathan Levers, who beat Ryan McElvie of Glenrothes in the 57kg category, with a unanimous decision after a hard-fought bout to reach the final.

In the final, Levers faced Connor Stewart of Hillpark. Both boxers gave it their all, taking it to the final bell, with a majority of 4-1 giving Levers the 2013 title.

Next in was ten-year-old James McDonald in the 30kg category, with McDonald over-powering his opponent, Dylan Roose from Midlothian, from the start.

With a flurry of punches, he won with a unanimous decision on his debut at the Eastern Districts.

The talented Brandon Singh (17), fought McGregor from 1314 ABC next in the 56kg category. Brandon out-boxed him from round one, taking the title to Denbeath.

Last bout of the day featured 17-year-old William McDonald at 69kg, who had an experienced opponent, Brodie Robertson. The two traded punches from the start, with a tie in the second, then took it to the last round on a hard-fought bout with William defeated 4-3.
