O’Neil’s Boxing Club stars Jacob Naismith and Taylor McMahon are celebrating after they both landed gold medals at two top events last month.On February 4 and 5 they represented the Cambuslang club at the Western District Championship finals at M&D’s Theme Park in Motherwell and they both claimed gold in their categories.More success followed on February 25 when the pair backed that up with title wins at the Scottish National Golden Gloves championships, having won through in their semi-final bout a week earlier.Jacob faced Cleland Boxing Club’s Kyle Wylie for glory and boxed very well, demonstrating good use of his jab and right hand cross, moving out of range and making his opponent miss with most of his shots.In the end, Jacob ran out the victory by a unanimous decision to claim the title in the 53 kg, 2008 category.Taylor then faced Mason Salmon, the boxer he had previously lost to in the final of last year’s National Championships.However, it was a more confident Taylor boxing this time around and he peppered his opponent with lefts and rights throughout the contest.He triumphed thanks to a unanimous decision, taking the Golden Gloves national title in the 54 kgs, 2007 category.A club spokesman said: “The coaches are very pleased with Jacob and Taylor’s success at the recent championships, as both work very hard in the gym and are gentlemen out of it, too.”Follow Lanarkshire Live Sport onTwitter via@LanLiveSport, like us onFacebookor find us onInstagramfor the latest sports news, pictures and video.
