Skegness Amateur Boxing Club is now affiliated to England Boxing.

The England Boxing Association, formerly known as the Amateur Boxing Association, attended the gym recently to carry out an inspection to make sure the facility and equipment is suitable for a boxing club.

England boxing is the only recognised association in the country and it works hard to promote boxing to young people, along with the safeguard of children.

Coaches have to undergo DBS checks and be first-aid trained and insured.

Head Coach Ross Flay said: “Boxing is a really good sport to get involved in and at Skegness ABC everyone is welcome, whether you want to compete or just get fit and learn how to box.

“We cater for juniors and adults and are currently looking for beginners to join the club and get boxing.

“It’s great to be affiliated by England Boxing, because it means our boxers can compete in official boxing contests against other affiliated clubs, both regionally and nationally.

“I am now working towards completing my level two coaching badge and continuing to train men, women, boys and girls.”

Ross added: “I look forward to the local boxers representing the club and town and possibly holding our own boxing show in Skegness in the future.”

Ross has been boxing and teaching boxing for more than five years and was the British Firefighting Boxing Champion three years running.
