'No feeling like it': New Army national boxing champion reacts to big title win

Carnell Brown won the cruiserweight championship at the 2021 England Boxing National Amateur Championships.

Carnell Brown has said he was "amazed" after winning a national title at the 2021 England Boxing National Amateur Championships.

The Army star beat Joel Aminu in the cruiserweight final at the University of East London.

Lance Corporal Brown's title came from a split decision result where judges awarded the Army star the bout by a score of 3:2.

"I was so happy, amazed; you know, buzzing!" he said. "There was no feeling like it.

"I've really worked hard for it with preparation and stuff like that. There's nothing worse than getting so close and not being able to achieve what you really want to achieve.

"It shows that people can achieve anything and the Army programme is second to none."

Watch: Carnell Brown wins the national title as three other military fighters fall short.
