MBBC ben­e­fit from trip to Flana­gan’s gym

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH - BOX­ING

MAC­CLES­FIELD Boys Box­ing Club re­cently made the trip to world cham­pion Terry Flana­gan’s gym in Manch­ester to spar with some of the top class pro­fes­sional box­ers un­der Steve Maylett’s wings.

It was a bril­liant test for Mac­cles­field, as they pre­pare for their own spec­tac­u­lar night of am­a­teur box­ing at Wilm­slow Leisure Cen­tre on Fri­day in front of a lo­cal sell-out crowd.

Al­though all the kids in the gym have been train­ing hard for the chance to show­case their tal­ents in front of fam­i­lies and friends, it’s es­sen­tial that the elite box­ers get a level of spar­ring that tests their abil­ity.

The box­ers in the Ard­wick gym cer­tainly did this and as such all the coaches in the gym thank them for the chance to train with them as Terry pre­pares to de­fend his WBO light­weight ti­tle against Derry Mathews at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on March 12.
