On Friday (25th January), the Dale Youth Boxing Club will be hosting a boxing gala at the Harrow Club in Freston Road, W10. Commencing at 7.30pm, 20 fights have been scheduled including a 71kg bout between the Dale’s Will McDermott and All Stars’ Obi Egbunike from Harlesden.
Tickets are just ¬£15 and its pay on the door. Further details appeared in last Friday’s local Gazette:
‘Dale Youth are hoping it will be third time lucky when they host their first show on home turf in more than 10 years on Friday, January 25. The gala was meant to have been tonight (Friday 18th), but the ABA ruled against the Maxilla Centre, next to the Westway, deeming it too small.
The North Kensington club’s coach Gary McGuiness, had originally scheduled it for tomorrow, only to find it clashed with the National Schoolboy Championships. Now the club that produced former Olympic champion James DeGale and seven ABA champions in eight years has moved the show to the Harrow Club in nearby Freston Road where they hope to recoup their ¬£1,400 outlay.’
Good luck to Mick Delaney and the Dale Youth on Friday night.
