|South Boston Boxing Club's "OctoberFist"
The young boxers of Southie’s Boxing Club have been training and patiently waiting for their chance to display their boxing skills for their family, friends and boxing enthusiasts. Boxing Club director Eddie Mahoney says the card features “the next generation of great Southie fighters”.
Eddie sends a special thank you to Helen Allix and John Lydon for allowing the Club to use the Stretch Walsh Center located behind the South Boston Court House for use of the facility, a site long used as Southie boxing venue. The Club also thanks Mayor Menino for his continued support as well.
The Southie boxers will be taking on youngsters from all over New England in what is shaping up to be a great night of boxing. Special featured guests include “Contender” stars Peter Manfredo Jr. and Jeff Fraza along with world-class boxer “Irish” Mickey Ward.
The night will also include many prizes and raffles so come on out Friday evening and support these hard working Southie youngsters.
