WANNABE boxers are being given a helping hand into the sport through a free boxing class courtesy of Leamington-based Edwin Cleary’s Boxing Club.
A free hour of boxing, fitness, and fun will be taking place at Brunswick Healthy Living Centre (just off Brunswick Street) next Monday (January 12) between 6-7pm.
The class will be coached by ABA trainer and ABA Novice Midland champion Michael Jephcot, who managed to lost ten stone before going on to become a national semi-finalist and he will be on-hand to discuss his diet and pass on healthy living tips.
This weekend sees the start of the ABA Elite Youth Championships and both Cleary’s boxers Danny Quatermaine and Lewis Williams will be expecting to do well.
Quatermaine is building a strong reputation in the sport and is likely to be feared by many of his opponensts in the early rounds, while Williams will be boxing three-minute rounds for the first time and will be looking for an easy route to the quarter-finals.
Coach Edwin Cleary said: “Danny and Lewis are the start of the next generation of boxers coming though the system at Cleary’s boxing gym.
“And with a very talented group following on, 2015 could be a great year for the gym.
“I’m Really excited about this young group of boxers coming off the production line at Clearys boxing gym.
“But talent is only a very small peace of any sportsman. It’s hard work, dedication, loyalty, listening and wanting to learn. Champions are not born, they are made.”
