Rotary: 80 years supporting Tully
Hotel Tully: The Top Pub will be hosting a special event this Sat
Last Saturday night a crowd of six hundred and fifty people were treated to a boxing special which included fireworks, DJ sound and smoke machines coupled with some great boxing. They came and filled the Ingham Showground Grandstand. There were seventeen matches, and some amazing atmosphere.
Dean Poppi and the Kingdom Gym would like to put out a special thankyou to Wayne Forden and Robert Sorbello for their help in organising the event. They would also like to put out a big thankyou to Chelsea and Rachel Maloy, Sophie Poppi and all the people who helped set up. And to all the sponsors, Ingham Sugar City Rodeo committee for looking after the bar and Golden Roast Catering for the beautiful food. Look forward to seeing you all at the next one.
The event showcased from juniors to intermediate to senior and included two masters over 40 years of age.
The spectators were treated to some very exciting bouts which had them engaged all the way to the end.
The Ingham boxers that fought on the night were Bradley Condensado, Dylan Cox, Bonnie-Jaye Moloy, Shay Motti, Landis Sawkins, Caden Russo, Jesse Bezzene and Wayne Cutter a masters fighter.
One of the outstanding fights in the female division was Shay Motti who took on a very slick and strong boxer in Page Candy from Charters Towers. Shay’s original opponent withdrew from injury so Shay stepped up and give away weight and experience to take the fight. Both girls put on a show stopping performance.
Ingham’s Kingdom Gyms slick boxer, puncher Landis Sawkins put on a great display of boxing against a talented and tough Townsville Hawks fighter Jaiden Menzies. On the night this bout had the crowd cheering and was down to the wire with Jaiden getting a split decision win. Well done both boys. It was a great match.
