It was a confident performance from Jade, whose previous belt was won in the Isle-of-Man and she has recieved a buy to the pre-quarter-final stage of the Novice Championship in the middle-weight category.
Fellow Leamington boxer Mariusz Piwowar tasted a disappointing defeat at the association stage of the Novice Championships on Sunday.
The 22-year-old lost by a controversial split decision to Rafal Zmarzly (Tamworth ABC) after having a point decucted by the referee.
Elsewhere, to Clearys boxers were also in action over the weekend with both Danny Quatermaine and Liam Timms tasting defeat.
Quatermaine lost out to Owen O’Leary at Bell Green Boxing Club in Coventry on Saturday night, although trainer Edwin Cleary confirmed to the Observer that they are looking at getting the defeat overturned.
Timms showed great resiliance and bravery to continue on in his fight with Conah Walker (Merrdale ABC) after taking a big blow to the face in the second round.
Timms wanted to carry on into the third round but the referee called a halt to the fight and Walker was given the victory.
Cleary added: “In some ways it was a good thing to see Liam lose because he showed tremendous bravery and character to battle on. He showed what a true fighter he is despite having a nose that ended up looking like a question mark!”
