A terrific night of action lies in prospect as West Hill Boxing Club prepares to host its second open show of the season.

West Hill matchmaker Dave Bishop has arranged 20 bouts, assuming none of them fall through, for the Hollington Community Centre tomorrow (Saturday).

On paper it looks a really good show, one of the best I’ve matched for a long time.

He said: “On paper it looks a really good show, one of the best I’ve matched for a long time. There’s always a good atmosphere there and all the other clubs enjoy coming down.”

West Hill’s senior boxers are set for action, including the excellent Shaun Attrell, who will defend his Southern Counties belt for the fourth time.

Belinda Skinner will seek to continue her 10-match unbeaten record against a tough girl from Essex and a lot of new juniors, who are shaping up very well, will also be on display.

Doors will open at 7pm and the boxing will get under way approximately half-an-hour later. Tickets will be available on the night priced at £10 for adults, and £5 for under-16s and concessions.

With a large crop of boxers training at its Whitefriars Road gym, these are exciting times for West Hill.
