Two Cranbrook residents brought home some hardware after competing at the 17th annual Ringside World Championship tournament in Independence, Missouri.
Troy Bannink and Tom White, both coaches with the Cranbrook Eagles Boxing Club, competed at the event from July 24 to 29 and both won belts as world champions.
It’s been a busy summer for the Eagles club and it will continue with a week-long boxing camp in Nelson this month. Local youth fighters Dylan Clark, Nike Blackmore, Payton Muhlig, Dylan Muhlig, Connor Ferrier and Owen Jolie will all attend the camp run by Eagles coach Bill Watson.
Following the camp, the young boxers will compete at the Silver Mountain Showdown in Kellogg, Idaho.
