Swinford Boxing Club is affording 20 people the opportunity to experience what life is like in the four cornered ring.

Anyone who has stepped between the ropes will tell you that you cannot replicate the rush one experiences when face to face with an opponent and the high after going toe to toe for three rounds.

Well if you’ve ever fancied sampling the atmosphere of a packed house chanting your name, then for one night only we are offering you that chance.

For six weeks in June and July, 20 individuals with no prior experience will be brought to fitness, schooled in the noble arts, and kitted out, to enter into battle.

Then in August, at a Las Vegas style boxing extravaganza in front of a capacity crowd all 20 will show off their new skills to raise funds for Swinford Boxing Club.

All matches will be made based on weight, fitness and skill levels. If you want to get fit, learn to box, and to be one of the lucky 20 individuals, then get in touch with the club (0872893554 – Tom or 0872039160 – Pat). Places are limited to 20 and will be filled first come first served.
