Matthew joined Team Nova Scotia for his first Nationals, having only been boxing a few short months. His training paid off as he boxed his heart out, losing a 3-0 decision to Quebec. But that didn't stop him from meeting another challenge - he requested a match with the another boxer in his weight class, but, again, lost in the decision.
However, as the youngest boxer on Team NS, Matt came home with a BRONZE medal - an accomplishment made from earned efforts and Matt certainly earned his reward. Congratulations, Matt.
