Congratulations to Daniel Warwarek, Australian champion.

Year 10 student, Daniel Warwarek missed his graduation ceremony, but he has an excuse.

Daniel was in Cairns competing in the Australian National Amateur Boxing Championships, representing Tasmania, under the auspices of the Claremont Boxing Club.

His family said he has been boxing for four years and this was the first time he has represented the State. he won the Tasmanian title for his weight in Launceston 5 November.

The last week he went a big step further and was successful in stopping his opponent for the National Title in the second round of the final in his 75kg division.

Congratulations, Daniel, Australian Champion
