Pakuranga College boxers take home three medals

Tyler Moran, Kheva Potatau and Wendell Stanley brought back three medals from the nationals.

This year’s Boxing New Zealand National Championships in Christchurch was a stand-out for east Auckland, with Pakuranga College students bringing home two golds and one silver medal.

Wendell Stanley proved too strong for his East Coast opponent, with the referee stopping the contest in the final round of the welterweight final.

Kheva Potatau controlled all the three rounds against his Central North Island opponent to win the Junior 52kg title. Tyler Moran also took silver in a hard-fought performance against Wellington’s Toby Jensen, ending in a 3-2 split decision.

All three boys attend local outfit Revills Boxing Gym. President Lance Revill is immensely proud of the their achievement: “This is a record year for Revills and the boys have worked really hard.”
