Boxers to put on knockout show!

THE young stars of Scorpion Boxing Club in Ballymoney hope to produce a knockout performance when they take on an Ulster select this Saturday night.

Local boxers are currently warming up to put on a thrilling slugfest at the Pound Bar in Loughguille.

Fight fans can expect to watch 12 explosive contests when the club’s young pugilists battle with rival up-and-coming stars from across Ulster.

Irish and Co Antrim champions will enter the ring when Scorpion boxers lace up against competitors from All Saints, Ballymena; Springhill, Moneymore; Churchlands, Coleraine; Errigle, Garvagh; and Holy Family, Belfast.

Organiser and renowned local trainer Alan ‘Spike’ Martin said contests will range in weight from electrifying youngsters at 25kg right up to the big hitters at heavyweight.

He said: “We’ve been running boxing nights for years and are one of the most successful clubs in the area.

“People can expect good boxing and the sport always helps kids to focus, keep them fit and off the streets.”

Doors open at 7.30pm for the fight night and admission costs £6.
