Lambert and Chapman now number one seeds for England Boxing National Amateur Championships 2019
March 26, 2019 | by Matt Halfpenny
Two England boxers have been promoted to number one seeds for the England Boxing National Amateur Championships 2019 after GB have withdrawn two boxers due to injury.
Harris Akbar has been forced to pull out of the Under 69kg category with a hand injury, meaning Harvey Lambert of St Paul’s replaces him as number one seed.
In the Female Under 57kg category, Karris Artinstall has suffered a dislocated knee, so the new number one seed is Raven Chapman of Arena.
The pre quarter-final stages begin in Nottingham at Harvey Hadden Sports Village a week on Friday (5th April) and will be followed by the quarter-finals (Saturday 6th April) and semi-final (Sunday 7th April).
Tickets are available on the day at the venue for all three days, priced £20 adults, £10 concessions (65+) and £5 children (6 to 15-year-olds). Under 5s are free.
Boxing starts at 1pm on the Friday and Saturday (12noon doors) and at 12noon on Sunday (11am doors).
The standalone Finals Day of the National Amateur Championships will be staged at Manchester Central on Saturday 13th April with ticket details to be announced shortly.
