This will be the 5th international Box Cup the club have attended, having previously attended the Monkstown Box cup in Dublin, Hull Box cup on two occasions, Wexford Box cup and the Odivelas Box Cup in Lisbon Portugal.
The international scene for the club has been extremely successful with the Marble City claiming Gold medals in every competition they’ve entered with a range of boxers and we hope to Continue that form here in England, it’s been a long while out of the ring, 18 months for some of the lads since their last competition but there is an air of confidence that they’ll rise to the occasion and put in a good performance.
What really matters in the bigger scheme of things getting back and winning provincial and national titles is where we want to be at but while we’re here we will do our utmost to win.
