Birmingham 'Sportsfest' 2007

For the first time boxing was invited to take part in the Birmingham City Council celebration of sport in the city, 'Sportsfest', held at Millenium Point. The ring was set up and the que's were long all day as local kids got some expert tuition on the pads from the coaches. A big thanks goes out to Hall Green ABC who brought lads down to spar, and GB squad member and Olympic hopeful, Frankie Gavin who chatted and did the corner for some of the youngsters. Also a big thanks goes out to Darren from Nechells Green ABC who brought young Liam down to show the public how its done on the pads, Nechells style!! and also to Paul Archer from Solihull ABC who helped out on the pads. Olympic Gold medalist Denise Lewis was also on hand to learn some basic boxing skills, as was the Lord Mayor and Cncllr ray Hassell.
Everyone is loving the boxing!!
Well done to all who took part
