Young boxers' chance for glory

FIGHT fans are expected to pack the Lordswood Leisure Centre on Saturday to catch a glimpse of possible future champions when the National Association of Boys' Clubs stage their annual championships.

Guest of honour will be former British and Commonwealth champion Jimmy Revie who will present the prizes.

St Mary's Boxing Club will be represented by five fighters in Sam Dunn (46-49 kilos), Mark Butler (52-54k), Craig Whiting (69-75k), Terry Thomby (57-60k) and David Lilley (54-57k).

The club would have had a sixth representative but Rhys Simmons has been given a walk-over because an opponent could not be found.

Representing Brompton Boxing Club will be Billy Newbury (69k) and Adam Dingsdale (48k).

The first fight is scheduled to start at 4pm.

Three times world champion Duke McKenzie will be guest of honour when Brompton hold their club championships on October 18. McKenzie is a club vice-president.
