A prestigious female boxing show is set to take place at Dukinfield’s Masonic Hall on Saturday 20 August.

The competition – organised by Droylsden ABC head coach Ian Harrison – will see England females take on Ireland females.

The show coincides with the Rio Olympics and is set to attract support from the CEO of England Boxing and the president of Irish Boxing.

Detailing the reasons behind the show, Ian said: “I’m hoping the event will showcase the talented female boxers we have in England and Ireland.

“With the Rio Olympics taking place at the same time, it’s a great opportunity for people to come out and watch female boxing in a live environment.

“I’m also hoping it will encourage more females to head to their local boxing clubs and take part in the sport.”

Ian is currently looking for local sponsors to help out with the event.

Admission to the event has been priced at £10 for adults and £5 for children (under 14)

The boxing is scheduled to being at 7.30pm.
