TRIUMPH ABC boxer Aaron Bowen ended his season in style, after taking a gold at the Elite Three Nations tournament in Scotland.
The 20-year-old added to England’s successful tournament after defeating Welshman Harris Khan in the 81kg final, with 11 English boxers winning gold medals and three others taking silver medals in all.
Bowen was awarded the win by unanimous decision at Oriam – Scotland’s National Sports Performance Centre in Edinburgh – after a 3-2 vote in his favour, winning by the same margin and outcome in the semi-final against Scotland’s Robbie Connor.
Victory in the Three Nations adds to the Coventry fighter’s impressive few months, after lifting the National Amateur Championships under-81kg title back in April.
The latest achievement also means that Bowen has now won the Three Nations at both elite and at school level – winning the latter in 2017.
With a well-earned rest awaiting him over the summer months, Bowen will reflect on another successful season in his fledgling career before preparing for a Team GB assessment in December.
