‘Outstanding’ win for Surrey boxer

Eric Basran brings home more hardware from Seattle

Surrey boxer Eric Basran has collected more metal following a recent battle in Seattle.

Basran, 16, competed in the Sea Mar Youth Boxing Tournament in Seattle on Sept. 20. Fighting in the 123-lb weight division, Basran used his superior speed and counter-punching ability to overwhelm his opponent, winning all three rounds in a unanimous decision.

Following the match, Basran was also awarded a trophy for the Most Outstanding Fighter at the 28-bout tournament – a recognition rarely received by a Canadian.

“Every fight he (Eric) is overcoming an experience edge factor that his opponent has,” said his coach Jerry Veerasammy. “Eric is progressing at an astonishing rate.”

So far this year Basran has a record of 4-1, including a silver medal at the Canadian Nationals.

Basran is hoping to compete again in Seattle in October.
