BORDERS boxer Sam Brown claimed a gold medal at Ravenscraig on Saturday.

The youngster delivered a first-round stoppage in the 2009 70kg Scottish Golden Gloves Final in his bout with Oscar Deans from the Keir Hardie Boxing Club.

This victory is even more significant as it comes on the heels of Sam’s recent triumph in the 2009 70kg C Scottish Development Championships.

And he also won the gold medal in the B Development Championships in October.

Jim Gow, head coach at Galashiels Boxing Club said: “It was a strong performance from Sam who overpowered the lad from the bell.

“It was great result for the young lad who is going to go far in the sport.”
