BOXING: Warwick Boxing Club head trainer Peter Leisegang is confident his boxers can perform well in this weekend's state championships at Griffith University in Brisbane.

Three Warwick club members were nominated but Brodie Fox has had to withdraw with tonsollitis.

Will Pratt will compete in the 64kg division and is looking for a win after going down in his first fight.

The 17-year-old has been training under Leisegang for a year and said he was confident of doing well in the state championships.

David Kern has played in state championships in tennis but his sporting focus is now boxing.

He will compete in the 81kg youth division at the state championships.

Kern, 16, lost his last fight on a split decision after winning his fight at a corporate night in Brisbane when he stopped his opponent after 80 seconds.

He showed good form in a spar last week against state champion Jacko McMahon.

Leisegang is upbeat about the state title chances of his two boxers.

"Chris Fox will be in the corner with me to help our boxers,” he said.

"David is a southpaw who has a good body punch.”

Professional boxer Kyle Teer and Fox have both sparred against the championship-bound boxers.
