A KEIGHLEY boxer proved to be the best of British as he continues his thriving career.

Muhammed Ibrahim Nadim, 20, beat Scotland's Stephen Donald on a unanimous decision in the 56kg final at the Three Nations event in Edinburgh.

The event saw English, Welsh and Scottish fighters battle for the honours

It continues Nadim's great year in the ring after he won the 52-56kg category final at the England Boxing National Amateur Championship 2019 Finals Day in April.

His trainer, Mick Jelley, who guided the early careers of fighters of Amir Khan and Scott Quigg, says he is proud of Nadim's success and believes he is well on his way to achieving his dream of turning professional.

Jelley said: "He fought really well, I'm really pleased with him.

"Everything went down well. The boxed the lad's head off.

"He got a cut above his eye in the last 10 seconds of the fight due to a clash of heads. It's part and parcel of boxing.

"He hits and works hard. To achieve what he has this year is brilliant. He has beaten the best in Scotland and is progressing.

"He has done brilliantly in this year's Three Nations.

"I don't know what's next for him. We will see if he gets picked for England and goes abroad.

"He will probably want to turn professional at some point, but that's up to him. That's his aim.

Nadim shows his dedication and commitment to the sport by travelling from his home in Keighley to train at his club, Bury ABC, in Greater Manchester. He has been training with the club for the last nine years.
