Trinity ready to follow in sisters’ footsteps as family makes history
THERE is plenty of passion among the Shaw sisters.
And while it is sometimes trained on each other at home, the teenage trio will now turn it on their rivals in the ring.
The three sisters, Tyler, Trinity and Destiny, will make their own slice of boxing history when they all strap up for the Hawks Boxing Queens of the Ring fight night at Jack Manski Oval.
It is believed to be the first time three sisters have fought on the same card. For middle sister Trinity, it is the first step towards a bright future.
The 15-year-old has stayed away from the ring for the most part, preferring to cheer on her sisters from the ringside rather than stepping through the ropes.
Both Tyler, 17, and Destiny, 14, have forged their own path on the women’s amateur circuit over the past four years and now their middle sister is ready to forge one of her own.
“Tyler and Destiny have inspired me to have a go at boxing and I found it really interesting. I used to do swimming and boxing when I was younger but then I got into rugby league for a while,” Trinity said.
“I am feeling mainly confident but I am a bit nervous. As soon as I get in the ring I am sure those nerves will go away.”
The Shaw sisters have taken inspiration from their mum, Michelle, who trained as a boxer when they were younger and had them in and around the ring.
The Queens of the Ring fight night is aimed at encouraging more women to get in the ring but will also feature exciting heavyweights Lachlan Duncombe and Lewie James. Gates open at 5.30pm.
