Brecon youth boxer Dan Pitt continued to shine on the international stage representing Wales last week. 

A Welsh team was taken out to Hungary to compete in the Bornemissza tournament.

At 86kg Dan was matched against Hungary in the semi-final on Thursday.

Dan’s stregnth and skill frustrated his opponent, who resorted to tactics which resulted in his disqualification in the third round, with Dan well ahead on points. 

Friday’s final bout was a much tougher prospect against a strong fighter representing Uzbekistan. Dan had to dig deep - he had a dose of man flu during the days leading up to competing - against the strong Southpaw boxer. He landed some great body shots in the early rounds and in the end it was Dan's cleaner shots and fitness which saw him announced as unanimous winner and his hand raised after nine gruelling minutes.

This victory represents Dan's third international gold medal this year from just three tournaments.

Brecon Phoenix Boxing Club coaches and clubmates are incredibly proud of Dan’s performance and he is heading towards the bigger stage as he transitions from youth to senior in the next 12 months. 

Next up for Dan is the British Championships, which will be held in Cardiff from June 7-9, where he is hoping to defend his UK title - followed by a well-earned summer of rest!
