Harvey Lambert shows Class and Determination.
Today saw the Senior Elite England finals taking place in London. Our very own Harvey Lambert boxed his way to the final where he found himself up against the England Number One, Harris Akbar.
Harvey put on a great performance and lost on a wafer thin decision to Akbar who is a former European Silver Medallist and World bronze medallist.
After the fight, Harvey said, “I was disappointed not to win, but he is a quality boxer and I think I did well”.
Mike Bromby Said, “Reflecting on a super weekend for our star Harvey Lambert, he had three fantastic performances against England’s best. He is a true role model who will reach the top in his chosen sport through his inspiring dedication and true talent.”
