Mason Raven’s mom said, “The whole family is so proud of him. He’s always loved boxing and is a huge fan of the Rocky and Muhammad Ali movies. This is where he got his feet dancing style.”

He already watched Creed 2 before the weekend’s fight.

“I didn’t go to Ravenscraig because he can get a little nervous when family is there but he was very happy when he came home, showing his medal.

“You watched the fight on YouTube and you can see by his reaction at the end what it means to him.

“He has always been athletic and also plays rugby, but boxing is his favorite and he wants to be a champion. He never misses a training.”

But Mason, who fights at 34 kg, wasn’t the only winner from Borderlands. His sparring partners, Hawick Boxing Club duo Ivan Watson and Max Vevers, joined him on the platform.
