On Saturday 20th August, Crawley was treated to a surprise visitor.
Champion boxer Barry McGuigan came down to Crawley Amateur Boxing Club with his up and coming talented young boxer Carl ‘the jackal’ Frampton who is training for his European title match in three weeks time in Belfast. Barry told us he had come down to make use of sparring partners Ross Payne, Ben Murphy and Ben Jones, all renowned boxers. Barry is the Manager of Carl in association with Matchroom. Barry’s son Shane is assisting his father with the training of Carl and came along on this day.
Shelley went along to speak to Barry. We would like to thank the Hopcraft family and Micky Alldis for this great opportunity.
