Biography

http://www.tonyjeffries.com/

Tony ‘Jaffa’ Jeffries became the only British light heavy weight to win an Olympic medal in over 60 years when he won bronze at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Since Beijing Jeffries has won BBC North East’s Sports Personality of the Year and has signed a 3-year professional contract with Frank Maloney. Jeffries started boxing when he was 10 years old when his Granddad took him to Lambton Street Boy’s Club, Sunderland. After trying out a few different boxing clubs Jeffries settled at Sunderland Amatuer Boxing Club. Jeffries went on to win two Schoolboy Titles, two National Boys club titles, Junior A.B.A’s and Senior A.B.A’s. He also became the first Englishman to win gold at the European Cadets in 2001. In 2006 Jeffries made the Quarter finals at the 2006 Commonwealth Games, losing 17-12 on points to eventual gold medallist Kenny Anderson (SCO). After the Commonwealth Games Jeffries had a hand operation and was out for the rest of 2006.
