Three boxers from Revill’s Boxing Gym in Pakuranga have come away with three golds from the prestigious Golden Gloves in Taupo over the Queen’s Birthday weekend.

Haransh Singh [63.5kg Youth Male, currently ranked #2 in New Zealand for his age and weight] is an up-and-coming amateur boxer and is proving to be a force to reckon with since starting to box in 2020.

Singh won both his bouts, defeating the New Zealand Champ in the final to claim his first Golden Gloves title.

Wendell Stanley, currently the 71kg New Zealand Champion and on the short list for the 2022 Commonwealth Games in July, won both his bouts knocking out his opponent in the first bout and winning the second bout with a point shut-out decision, claiming his sixth North Island Golden Gloves title.

Kheva Potatau [63.5kg Elite Male, currently ranked #2 in New Zealand for his age and weight], who narrowly missed out on a National title in April, had the fight of the day with an outstanding bout that secured his third North Island Golden Gloves title.

The Revills team was led by head coach Lance Revill accompanied by assistant coach Jonathan Nevin.

“The team were not alone for this tournament with a large support crew from the gym coming to cheer the team on,” said Nevin.

“With parents, gym members and supporters it was great to see so many come to cheer on the Revill’s Boxing Gym.”

Revill couldn’t be more proud of the talent on display from his boxers.

“They were outstanding…couldn’t have asked for anything more, these lads train hard and the results are showing in buckets loads,” said Revill.
