England International and European Champion Ebonie Jones has been selected to box for a joint GB/England v France team match being held in Aines,France. Jones will be moving up a weight to compete at the 52kg category instead of her regular 50kg International weight.
Head Coach “Q” Shillingford MBE explained – Ebonie was assisting with the training of the kids at HOP half term boxing camp, then training at the carded boxers session in the afternoon, when the call up came through. Jones who always keeps in training in case last minute International call ups like this happen, is ready – coaches Colin Williams and Jason Evans have been putting Ebonie through her paces and will ensure she is ready for the International match, also Ebonies dad, Chipper Jones has also been taking Ebonie running and sprinting on the sea front.
Its a bonus really as Jones will be using this bout as a preparation contest for this years European Championships 2014 which will be held from 19th – 28th July 2014 in Assisi, Italy
