Denaeo went to Tbilisi in Georgia with his England team to box in the European Championships from 1-12 August.

His first fight was against Slovenia and he won with a unanimous decision. His second fight for a bronze medal was against Lithuania and, again, he won with a unanimous decision. His third fight for a silver medal was against Armenia and, again, he won with a unanimous decision. His final fight for a gold medal was against Georgia and he won again by split decision.

He now holds the school European championship title, along with his GB and England title, which means he has achieved the highest level in boxing for his age!

Well done Denaeo!
