This Friday there will be a Box 4 Fitness benefit gig combined with a calendar launch at the Trades Club
In February 2011, 5 female boxers who train at HB based boxing club, Box 4 Fitness, will travel to Gleason's Gym* in New York to participate in a boxing clinic culminating in their first 'white collar' boxing bout.
Following in the footsteps of of Ali, Foreman and Mike Tyson who also trained at Gleason's, these 5 women will bring back valuable knowledge to the club and the young hopefuls of Calderdale who have the opportunity to participate in the 2012 Olympics, when for the first time, Women's Boxing will be featured.
The 2011 Calendar will be launched and on sale at this event, photographed in 'Calendar Girls' style by me.
ENTERTAINMENT will include local band, Elms as well as DJ's Black Angel and Daz & Dave.
Tickets are available from the Trades Club or from Kate at Tony's Gym in Salem Mill.
*Gleason's is a world famous boxing gym responsible for popularising women's boxing when they trained Hilary Swank for her part in Million Dollar Baby.
