Bideford ABC boxers Jack Langford and Ray Penfold’s skills have been recognised as they have been called for a weekend selection camp working towards the next olympics Rio 2016.

Jack is currently the British Welterweight champion and at only 19 years old has won several titles in his 9 years at the club. Ray who has been at the club since 8 years old, now 18, came runner up in the British championships last year. Both lads have to travel to London at the weekend an if they impress, could be called up for the Great Britain boxing team.
