Byron Boxing star Boris Crighton today targeted the 2018 Commonwealth Games after securing a historic British elite title gold medal.
The 22-year-old became the first Aberdonian in a generation to lift the prestigious title.
Crighton triumphed in the 81kg light-heavyweight final with a split decision victory over fellow Scot James Nelson at the Alhambra, Dunfermline.
Scotland international Crighton hopes that gold medal glory can vault him into team GB and also pave a path to the Commonwealth’s in Gold Coast, Australia, in two years.
He said: “Winning the British elite title is the pinnacle of my career so far.
“Hopefully on the back of winning gold I will get a call to ask me to try out for the GB team.
“That is the next step I am working towards.
“In terms of the long-term goal, the Commonwealth Games are only two years away and are something I am working towards.
“Securing the British title is another step towards the target of competing at the Commonwealths.”
