WESTERN Counties and Southern Division champion Toby Osmond begins his assault on the national title tomorrow.

The Weymouth Amateur Boxing Club youngster, 14, travels to Southampton for his schoolboy pre-quarter-final bout, in which he goes toe-to-toe with Stacey’s Mohammed Khan in the Class Three 54-57kg category.

Osmond enters the contest in fine form following two impressive victories in his previous two encounters.

First, the seasider overcame Michael McCann of Poole by a unanimous decision to clinch the Southern Division crown.

Following that, the teenager put on a stunning display against Broad-plain’s Jake Smith, in which he bagged the Western Counties title courtesy of a third-round stoppage.

Club president David Nelmes expressed his pride in Osmond’s achievements to date.

He said: “He’s done ever so while his last bout was arguably the best he’s ever boxed.”
