Mr Spratt says a lot of work goes into a few minutes or even seconds in the ring, but it's the results that count. He says by winning national titles, the four young Kapiti boxers are helping put their local club on the radar of the sport's circles.
Raumati Beach's Toby Jensen, 15, won the 57kg junior male featherweight title and his older brother Zac Jensen, 16, won the 63kg junior male light-welterweight title. Paraparaumu's Michael Reynolds, 18, won the 69kg youth welterweight title; while Waikanae's Szilard Laszlo, 18, won the 75kg youth middleweight title.
Kapiti 19-year-old Andor Laszlo, a 69kg senior welterweight, was runner-up in the elite fighter senior open division
