The achievements of Price and McCormack were the high points of a superb year for GB Boxing which saw boxers from the squad win 16 medals at four major championships in 2019.

GB Boxing’s Performance Director, Rob McCracken, said: “2019 has been a fantastic year for GB Boxing that has seen our boxers win a lot of medals at some extremely tough competitions and it is great to see the boxers get rewarded for their achievements tonight.”
