DUDLEY'S Sahil Khan secured gold medal joy with England at the Schools and Junior GB Three Nations Championships.

The event in Scotland saw the Hillcrest School and Community College pupil defeat Scotland's David Quinn in the 50kg final last Sunday.

The talented youngster, who trains at Wolverhampton's Merridale Boxing Club, followed up his recent national junior title with another accomplished display.

Khan, 15, boxed well against Quinn to bag gold with a unanimous points win.

He started the first round well with accurate single shots to the head and body on the occasion throwing combinations.

In the second round, the Scot came out all guns blazing in a bid to take control. However, Khan kept his cool and boxed well to land with good punches with both hands to secure a memorable success.

His father Ifraz Khan said: "He did brilliantly. It was one of the proudest moments of my life.

"It's special when you are out there representing your country and out-boxing lads in their hometown.

"It was a big challenge for him because it's a different level fighting internationally but he did well and I think he impressed the England coaches as well.

"The win is another big step. He's ready for anything and can keep getting better."

He was part of a strong team of 41 England boxers that won 18 golds, four silver and four bronze medals under the guidance of coach Amanda Coulson.

Khan will now compete at the European Championships in Russia in October.
