Birmingham's very own version of Amir Khan, Khalid Saeed, became the first English boxer to win a gold medal at the World Cadet Boxing Championship
Moseley's 16-year-old starlet beat Luis Yanez, of the United States, 28-19 to create history in Liverpool.
Yanez won the Junior Olympics and was widely regarded as America's No 1 boxer on show, so it was a statement of intent from Saeed, who could well be on board the plane to Beijing for the 2008 Olympic Games.
A relentless display of jabbing won his prize before he started his celebrations with the top amateur coach in the Midlands, Frank O' Sullivan.
Saeed said O'Sullivan, who has coached talents such as Robert McCracken in the past, was the major reason he had created history.
"I have been with Frank for four years and without him, I wouldn't have won this gold medal," said Saeed.
"His record speaks for itself and he has improved my boxing skills immensely during that period.
" It was a fantastic experience for me at the tournament, but after I had beaten the favourite in the semi-final (Kamoldin Ahmedov of Uzbekistan), I knew everyone was expecting me to win.
"Yanez was a tough opponent but I gradually got on top as the fight wore on and felt in control."
Saeed certainly isn't suffering from any delusions of grandeur as he was back on public transport yesterday, heading for his ususal training session with O' Sullivan.
But that is the policy he needs to adopt if he is to achieve his goal to compete in China in three year's time, still as a teenager.
There was another young teenage boxer from Bolton who had a similar impact in the 2004 Olympics and Saeed admitted that he liked watching Amir Khan fight. However, the light-flyweight is very much his own unique individual talent and is hoping for more tangible rewards.
"I need to keep on improving and try to win more international tournaments," said Saeed.
"However, I did allow myself the satisfaction of a celebration with my teammates in Liverpool and then when I returned home to Birmingham there was a huge family party as well."
