TEENAGE Torfaen boxer Crimea Jenkins is flying out to Hungary to box in the European Championships.

The 14-year-old, who fights out of Torfaen Warriors ABC in Cwmbran, is the current Wales 52kg champion and also won gold at the Pirkka Cup in Finland.

Jenkins will fly to Hungary on June 29 and the tournament runs until July 7.

He is following in the footsteps of his dad who also won several Welsh schoolboy boxing titles and he hopes to emulate fellow Torfaen Warriors fighter Ashley Brace in the future.

Brace is representing Wales at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow next month.
