A NEW SEASON APPROACHES – CHANGES

A NEW SEASON APPROACHES – CHANGES

It’s almost upon us, a new amateur boxing season…  Hold up, that’s the first major change right there, the term ‘amateur’ has all but been abolished under the new, revolutionary AIBA guidelines. We are now talking about ‘open’ boxing, as opposed to ‘amateur’. That said, here it comes, another season.  Club founder Richard Powers very kindly kept all of his coaches busy during the summer break.  Get-Set-Go Sport have been here, there and everywhere, providing top quality boxing outreach sessions for the young and bored of old London Town.  Oh, here’s another change: head-guards have been abolished for ‘senior’ boxing competitions…  And ‘senior’ boxers are now known as ‘elite’ boxers – phew!  Oh well, you know what they say; a change is as good as a rest.  We’ve had the rest, and now we’ve got the change.
Here’s to a inspirational new season.  Here’s to a win for Kwame ‘KOB’ Boateng, and another for Matt ‘The Young Bull’ Teixeira.  Here’s to a top-notch debut from Callum McKeever, and another for Yves ‘The Congo Kid’.  And keep your eyes out for big Mikey ‘O’ at light-heavy – man oh man, can he dig?   Yes he can!
And, last but not least, here’s a big thank you to non-stop sports enthusiasts Richard Powers and Jenny Hunter for a summer’s worth of work.  Lovely stuff!
It’ll very soon be all systems go.  Are you ready?  Be ready?  Ready is good.
