The Liverpool club holds its annual presentation, writes Tommy Dix
LIVERPOOL’S famed Golden Gloves ABC held their annual presentation night at the Fusion nightclub.
All the stops were pulled out by Wayne Smith and the Gloves’ hard working committee. There was a wonderful atmosphere and a virtual capacity house not just for the presentations but for the entertainment.
A good club is like a family. How true those words are today. With fifteen development boxers, twelve junior boxers and ten seniors, competition was really top class for the awards and much thought went into who got them.
The special achievement award went to Kirk Smith for winning most improved boxer at regional training camp and gaining Merseyside and Cheshire Schoolboy title 2017. Most improved Junior went to Hussain Salem and finally Josh Dodd won the award for loyalty and dedication to the club.
The Golden Gloves also hold monthly shows at the Fusion Night Club so there is no lack of action for the members.
Boxing not only teaches boys and girls how to look after themselves but it also gives them discipline and helps to mould their character and with the training team and helpers at Liverpool’s Golden Gloves the members are in good hands. It’s as Sugar Gibilru said – “We are putting something back in.”
