Repton teenager Martin Ward brought home a silver medal last week after shining against high standard opposition in the Brandenburg Cup competition in Oder, Frankfurt.

The tournamen attracted strong entries from 22 countries around the globe but the 17-year-old Ward made a bright start in his opening fight against Turkish champion Alkan Ozdemin in the 5lkg section.

Ward controlled the action and left little doubt about his superiority over his rival with an 18-5 winning margin from the judges.

The Repton prospect faced a tougher test in the semi-finals against Dieter Geier, a German boxer with enthusiastic vocal support from the home crowd.

Yet it was again the accurate attacks of the Repton boxer that proved too much for a talented rival as Ward quickly built up a winning margin.

French star Oualid Belaoura was tipped as the gold medal favourite in the division and he showed his class in an evenly-fought final against Ward.

The pair produced a high-

standard duel, with Belaoura taking gold on a 16-9 decision from the ringside judges at the final bell.

Ward will bid for another medal in October when he travels to compete in the AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships in Guadalajara, Mexico.
