Paris listened to her coach and used all her foot work and boxing skills to out point and out manoeuvre her opponent. In the last round Paris Williams piled on the pressure to seal her victory and claim the England Boxing National Title 2016.

Special thanks to HOP Coach Colin Brown who worked very hard in the preparation of the championships and her dad Terry Williams who coaches at the boxing club most evenings.

Paris trains very hard most evenings in the gym and again at weekends. Paris Williams is a great role model for all young females looking to get into sport and make a difference in there lives.
