ECU Senior Wins National Championship In Boxing


An ECU student has brought a national championship back to campus.

Senior Brandon Knox won the gold medal in his weight class at the United States Intercollegiate Boxing Championships in Miami this month. The construction management student fights in the 125-pound weight class and won over a Georgetown University boxer in the finals.

Knox is a full-time student with two jobs, who still found time to train several days a week. After finishing second and third places in previous years, he says finally bringing home the title was worth all the hard work.

Boxing is a club sport at ECU. Members of the team help to coach and train each other.
