It’s a knock­out

Bray People - - Sports -

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.
