Hope of great things: Hunslet boxer keeps on winning

Hunslet Club boxer Hope Price, 17, continues his phenonenal winning streak, with another national title under his belt, and great things ahead for the coming months.

Last month (Sunday 18 February 2018) saw Hope retain his national title as youth flyweight (52kg) at Doncaster Dome.

Next up are the Youth European Games, in Italy in April – where he secured a silver last year, despite being young in his category. He then aims to win a place at the Youth Olympics in Argentina in October – and he’s ultimately aiming for the 2020 or 2024 Olympics in Tokyo and Paris.

Hope trains at The Hunslet Club, which runs boxing sessions for boys and girls aged 5 upwards, as well as adults – and also the popular Boxercise fitness classes every Wednesday evening. Ring (0113) 271 6489 for more details.
