IT’S fight night this Saturday when the Home Counties take on the Royal Navy in the latest installment of WGC Boxing Club’s successful home show.

The Home Counties team joined up with the WGC boxers at a sparring session at the Hollybush Lane-based club at the weekend

As well as featuring 12 bouts involving fighters from the Hollybush Lane-based club, Stanborough School hosts the eagerly anticipated duel between the cream of Home Counties amateur fighters against their Royal Navy counterparts.

And one Times Territory pugilist will be looking to do his club proud.

WGC boxer Cameron Clarke will line up with seven other selected fighters as part of the Home Counties dream team.

Exciting prospect Frankie Hobden is out of action unfortunately, after suffering a nasty cut to his eye in training.

All the lads involved in the show this coming Saturday attended a training and sparring session at the Hyde Sports & Social Club on Sunday to prepare themselves for the main event.

Club coach Martin Calvert said: “We are all really looking forward to it and there are some great fights lined up.”

And Paul Cook, also coach at the club as well as an England National coach, added: “There will be some important people watching on, and some top coaches in attendance, it’s sure to be a great night of boxing.”

Tickets for the event, which will take place at Stanborough School, can be purchased from the Hyde Sports & Social Club on Hollybush Lane, or from Hallgrove Garage, WGC.

You will also be able to purchase tickets on the night, but buy in advance to avoid disappointment.

The cost to see top boxing action is £10 for adults and £5 for children, with doors opening at 6pm, fights are scheduled to start from 7pm.
