Following in the footsteps of Commonwealth Champions

SCOTLAND’S FUTURE BOXING HEROES FOLLOW IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF COMMONWEALTH CHAMPIONS
22/01/2015
The boxing stars of the future are set to follow in the footsteps of some of the boxing champions created at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. One of the rings used during the Games, and other boxing equipment has been donated to the Phoenix Amateur Boxing Club in Dalmarnock.

The ring and a boxing training station was bought by Glasgow Life through a donation from the Barr Family Trust and was used at the Commonwealth Games before going onto the Phoenix ABC.  The club has almost 50 junior members and counts Commonwealth Gold Medallist Charlie Flynn among its former members.

The new ring will be a direct replacement for one which has been used by Phoenix ABC members in the last 4 years. The ring can also be moved to promote the sport at events around the city.

Councillor Archie Graham, Chair of Glasgow Life said: “Even as a glorious year of sport draws to a close, Glasgow is still reaping the rewards of investment in the city’s sporting clubs. The legacy of giving equipment to local clubs which was used by the champions we all supported this summer will inspire a whole new generation of boxers and perhaps help us identify the champions of tomorrow.”
