Boxing club invites new members

Normal, Sports

THE Defence Boxing Club opened its doors last Friday to extend an invitation to all new and existing members to begin this year’s season.
Club president Smith Yonny announced last week that the registeration fee for this season is K20 compared to K15 last year.
The boxing club will be using the Murray Barracks Gym which will be opened from 4pm to 5pm every Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to members of the club.
Yonny said he was looking forward to have the club up and running as soon as possible to ensure that training began early in preparation for any of the fighters who are intending to attend the Oceania Games in Canberra, Australia next month.
He said there were some fighters who looked promising last year.
They were Sylvia Keguma, Mark Keto, Ivan Siaikalata and Bulu Yoni.
They represented PNG at the Arafura Games except for Yoni who represented PNG at the junior Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India.
Last year, the club had three representatives at the National Games, with Yonny as team manager.
This year, the club will be looking for much better achievement and discipline at all bouts.
