PCYC boxers hit the road

THIS week the boys from the PCYC are off to Emerald with veteran trainer Des Upton hoping to get fights for about a dozen of his troupe.

Among those making the trip will be regular performers Harley Broom and Lachlan Hinchliffe.

Last week Hinchliffe fought at Moranbah and added to his impressive record the name of Townsville fighter Tom Hecle whom he beat on a split points decision.

“I hear he fought very well,” said Upton who missed that trip.

“Lachlan has been training pretty well and sparring for eight rounds (at the PCYC).”

One of his sparring partners, Dan Withers, will also be in action tonight as he tries to build on his fight record of one win from one fight.

Apart from the regular competitors like Lincoln Martyn there is also a sprinkling of new names who will be stepping in to the ring for the first time.

Fourteen year old Wylie Curly makes his debut in the 60kg division as does Lucas Fry an exciting southpaw who weighs in at 58kg.

Upton said he was pleased to see the Woorabinda PCYC back in action for the first time in 40 years.

“They have fighters with some ability,” he said, “many years ago Kenny Tramby brought about ten little fighters to me when I was at the Blackwater PCYC.”
