Southampton boxing star Amber Moss-Birch was crowned European Champion in Georgia.

The Golden Ring ABC fighter picked up the gold medal while representing England in the 70kg division.

Moss-Birch triumphed 4-1 over Georgia’s Tatia Bukia.

England Boxing performance coach Mick Driscoll said: “For me, Amber was one of the boxers of the tournament. Her belief in herself is superb and she could potentially be a future star of English boxing.

“They had taken away the 67kg weight category, which she could have made, so we were a little worried that she would be on the small side against some of her opponents – but we couldn’t have been more wrong.

“She has a very relaxed style and glides across the ring and she beat opponents from Italy, Hungary and Ukraine, showing she is a class act.

“She’s got the footwork of girls boxing at lower weights, but the power to go with it, meaning she has a very bright future.”
