It’s a knockout
AS SNOW brought Bray to a veritable standstill on Thursday evening, the boxing show clash between Bray Boxing Club and Cambridge University went ahead as planned.
The plane carrying the Cambridge fighters was the last one to touch down at Dublin airport, according to Pete Taylor of Bray Boxing Club.
Fighters travelled all the way from Portlaoise, Crumlin, Dungarvan and Killbarrick for the evening of sport in the Royal Hotel.
Of 16 bouts, the Bray Club won 12 with stars of the night emerging as Lee Taylor, Dwayne Brady and Greg Renick.
Over 300 people managed to make their way to the Royal Hotel through disastrous conditions on the roads. ‘It was amazing to get 300 people it was that bad out,’ said Pete.
The atmosphere in the hotel’s function room was thick with excitement, with a ring set up in the middle of the room. Cambridge have invited the Bray club to London for a coaching seminar this year.
