Eyemouth boxer Lewis Paulin has been enjoying a very successful few days training camp.

Lewis made the journey to Birmingham and Wales to get the opportunity to train with some of the country’s top boxers and seek training advice from their coaches.

He had two excellent sparring sessions with the professional Troy James who could be fighting for a British title within the next few months. He also travelled to Wales for a day where he had the honour of sparring world champion Lee Selby.

Lewis enjoyed the experience and learned a lot from Selby who had an extremely fast jab. Lewis also sparred Lee’s brother Andrew Selby who is a massive prospect in the professional ranks with fantastic footwork and sparred a few rounds with Gary Buckland (ex-super featherweight British champion) who’s making a comeback now.

He found Gary a lot easier to hit than the Selby brothers with his more come forward spar, a style which suits Lewis.

The coaches were all very impressed with the Berwickshire boxer and have asked him back to help Troy James with sparring for a possible fight with the current British Featherweight champion Ryan Walsh.

Lewis is now preparing for his first fight of 2016 at Glasgow City Hotel on March 18 when hopes to retain his unbeaten record.

He would like to thank his sponsors David Sparham construction, and Michael Henry Builders for funding this training trip and EDF energy for arranging for him to have time off.
