|Stephen Maylett’s Column|
Last month saw the Manchester boxing scene put itself right back on the map as one of the strongest boxing city’s in the country.
|Steve Foster European Champ.|
Everyone knew it was going to be cracker and it didn’t disappoint. Crolla claimed a great victory to win the title and will again be knocking on the door for a British title fight and rematch with Gary Sykes. Well done lads for a great fight.
Manchester also have the English heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, who hopes to fight for the British title soon and it is hoped he can fulfill his assets and potential.
|‘Flying the flag’ John Murray|
There’s also a talented crop bumping up there records and improving with each fight all these young prospects are waiting to burst on the scene and I’m looking forward to when it happens I think this batch could be the most exciting ever, which includes Ronnie Heffron, Reece Roberts, Joe Murray and my two lad’s, all are starting to make waves in their careers and hopefully titles beckon for them soon.
|Terry sparred with Munroe|
Team Munroe loved Terry and said he is one of the best young talents they have seen. He sparred brilliantly and was perfect sparring for his WBC world title fight with Terry having some of the moves Nishioka has.
|The new gym needs work!|
And that was the problem, the traveling was killing me. I’m losing an hour and 40 minutes a day sat in traffic and that’s dead time. I was looking around for premises for my own gym nearer to mine and the lads home, but I needed somewhere cheap and they were all to dear.
