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.”
