The Dublin County Boxing Board and Coaching Committee ran a great day of Schoolboys and Junior boxing against an England Selection on Saturday 20th October at the National Stadium.
Included in the line up was European Medallists, Irish and English Champions, and many boys making their first International Debut.
On the day a presentation from the Dublin Coaching Committee was made to boxing legend Les Stevens (who was part of the England selection coaching team).
Les was making his to return to the National Stadium having boxed for England vs Ireland in the 1970’s. Les set up Pinewood Starr ABC in 1981 and has coached over 150 National Champions – a remarkable feat by “Mr. Pinewood” himself.
On behalf of the Dublin Coaching Committee we would sincerely like to thank both Andy Abrol and John Hedges for top class match making and we look forward to the return match in December 2018.
The officials who done a remarkable job with so many bouts. The R&J were top class.
All the sponsors who helped fund the show, along with Dublin Plumbing and Gas who sponsored vests for the home team and www.FightersCorner.ie who sponsored T-Shirts for all the away boxers.
