Knock-out guy Eric's fight for his dream
SOMETIMES in life you meet a person who is so well rounded, so utterly content that you can’t help but wonder: why I can’t I be like that?
I hadn’t met the guy before and when he suggested we meet in the lounge at Lancashire Health and Racquets Club in Middleton I was concerned about how we would recognise each other.

Booth wins title
Oldhams Cameron Booth overcame a tough opponent to win the National Schoolboys Title on Saturday. Fighting in the 50kg category, Booth used his slick boxing skills to beat Kieran Davies of West Durham. The big Geordie provided a challenge but Booth once again showed his talent to get the win. Now the 11 year old has become the latest champion of the Oldham Boxing and Personal Development Centre, following the success of Robbie Connor and Jack Ellender.
Jack was robbed
Oldham boxer Jack Ellender narrowly lost out on the National Schoolboy Championship on Saturday. Ellenders opponent, J Elliss from West Ham missed a lot of the punches he was throwing, while Jack was landing his. The 13 year old, from Oldham Boxing & Personal Development Centre, looked to have won in the final, but the judges scorecards read 10 10. Eventually Ellender lost on countback. Even his opponents trainer said Jack should have been declared the winner. Despite losing in the final, Jack has still been picked to represent England in the Tri Nations tournament.

Care Course Massive Success.
A course to help unemployed people find work in the care sector has been a massive success. People looking to gain knowledge of care work, were able to take part in the week long course at the Oldham Boxing & Personal Development Centre in Derker.
Those who took part learned of the roles and responsibilities needed in caring for others and practical skills used in the industry. The course was designed around the Common Induction Standards that all care workers must work towards and has had a successful track record in helping successful candidates find work.
Ellender Beats Drama.
Oldham’s Jack Ellender produced another superb display despite a night of drama at the Boxing gym in Birmingham last Sunday 13/2/11. Jack was in the ring ready to fight Jamie Edwards in the National Schoolboy quarter finals when a member of the audience suffered a heart attack and needed medical attention. The young boxers had to go back to their dressing rooms and wait an agonising 45 minutes to return to the ring.When the action finally got under way, Ellender dominated his opponent with a display of power-punching and slick movement. The first round was clearly one sided and Jack was ready to do the same in the second, but there was more drama to follow. The judge’s score
for the first round was 0-0, with everyone confused, the officials announced that the fight would have to restart after the judges electronic scoring cards were not working. The fight started again, now using paper scoring, and Jack carried on his fine display to finally win the fight having effectively fought in four rounds.
