Pro­moter and date set for Fight Night

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

Af­ter hav­ing to post­pone its ‘Fight Night’ twice, Golden Rivers RSL Box­ing Club has a new date for its first event of the year.

Lo­cal box­ers will show­case their tal­ent at the De­niliquin RSL Club on Satur­day, Au­gust 18.

Golden Rivers pres­i­dent Roy Lynn said he was ex­cited to fi­nally se­cure a date, with pro­moter Troy Richards signed for the event.

‘‘We had is­sues with book­ing a pro­moter and also hav­ing a rep­re­sen­ta­tive from Com­bat Sports Aus­tralia avail­able on the same date,’’ he said.

‘‘We were very lucky to have Troy help us out.

‘‘Troy will be our pro­moter for the Au­gust show, and also a show that we are hold­ing in Novem­ber.’’

Find­ing a pro­moter won’t be an is­sue for much longer for Golden Rivers, with vice pres­i­dent Travis Rochford set to earn his pro­moter’s cer­tifi­cate.

Lynn said Rochford will fill the role for all shows, start­ing next year.

‘‘Travis works ex­tremely hard for the club and we can’t thank him enough for what he does,’’ he said.

‘‘For him to take on this role just shows the kind of hard­work­ing per­son he is.

‘‘We are still look­ing for more referees and judges for our up­com­ing shows though.’’

Golden Rivers will again hold cour­ses for those in­ter­ested in be­com­ing a qual­i­fied ref­eree and/or judge.

If in­ter­ested please con­tact Roy Lynn on 0400 343 758.

Golden Rivers Box­ing Club re­cently wel­comed two for­mer mem­bers back with Edgar Day and Jamie East both re­turn­ing to help train the box­ers.

Lynn said he was ex­cited to have both Day and East back at the club.

‘‘Edgar used to help out a while ago and has a lot of ex­pe­ri­ence,’’ he said.

‘‘He re­ally wanted to help out again so we were quite happy to have him back.

‘‘I trained Jamie (East) about 20 years ago and he wanted to give back to the club and help us out where he can.

‘‘They will both be in here to help with train­ing ev­ery Tues­day night.’’
