Friday night I get a few guys from work and head down to the Boleyn Working Mens Club. Fairburn ABC are having their home show and have 9 bouts lined up. I boxed for Fairburn as a kid and it was great bumping into Jumbo (head coach), and all lot of the kids I trained with a over a decade ago. They're not kids anymore. All of us hitting our 30's. I was surprised that apart from me, none of the others where competing in any combat sports.
As for the bouts, the last bout stood out for me. A master class on attacking the body by the Fairburn fighter. In the end the fight was stopped in the third round, with a visiting fighter with some very sore ribs.
The work guys I took along loved the evening out, £10 at the door with the proceeds going to the Fairburn Amateur Boxing Club. Awesome night out.
