All Star Boxing Academy fighters were in golden form at the Queensland State Titles over the weekend.

The academy, now at Pine Rivers Showgrounds in Lawnton, won 13 gold medals, one silver and one bronze from September 17-19 at the Acacia Ridge Hotel.

Paul Utai, Head Coach of Amateur Boxing at the All Star Academy, said it was “very good going” by all the club’s members.

“Because of all the hard work and dedication these boxers put in, I was hoping for a good outcome,” Utai said.

“Well done to everyone. All that hard work has been worth it.”
