PCYC Boxing Competition Sure To Be A Knockout

Boxing is a sport that is inextricably linked with the PCYC.

“When the PCYC as an organisation started in 1937, boxing was one of the core sports and you’ll find that most PCYCs still have some form of connection to boxing,” Singleton PCYC club manager Dave Andrews shared with The Hunter River Times.

For the first time in exactly six years, Singleton PCYC will be hosting an Amateur Boxing Competition on February 24 at Singleton Civic Centre.

With a lot of local boxers interested, Dave is urging them to register and participate in the night.

“Like most sports, you don’t just want to spend all your time practicing, eventually you want to actually go out and demonstrate those skills,” Dave said.

Ethan Upward is a local amateur boxer whose first fight will be on the night.

“I started training with Singleton PCYC because boxing was something I wanted to try,” Ethan shared.

“I’ve been training a lot to prepare for the fight night, so it’ll be a great opportunity to test out everything I’ve practiced.”

Spectators are welcome to experience the amateur boxing competition and doors open at 5pm and the program kicking off at 6pm.

Tickets will be available at the door or at the Singleton PCYC with adult tickets being $40 and under 18 tickets being $18.

“The boxing competition will be a licensed event with food options and there’s a limited number of ringside tables that are being snapped up by families of the fighters and sponsors,” Dave said.

The PCYC has also gained the generous sponsorship of Complete Parts and Equipment Solutions as their major sponsor.
