Boxer Mike enjoys dream trip to USA
KINGSWAY Boxing Club boxer Mike McCartney was selected to represent the Merseyside and Cheshire Amateur Boxing Association on a trip to the USA.
He was amongst a group of boxers chosen from across the region who visited Louisville, Kentucky – the birthplace and the final resting place of the legendary Muhammad Ali.
In addition to a number of sightseeing excursions, Mike was also able to participate in several training sessions during this once in a lifetime experience.
He has now returned to Kingsway Boxing Club where he has been happy to share his experiences with his clubmates.
Kingsway Boxing Club train at Optimum Fitness Gym every Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings from 6.30pm until 8pm. New starters with an interest in boxing competitively are welcome to come along to one of the club’s new starter nights on the first Friday of every month. ●
