MARCH Amateur Boxing Club are set to hold their first show in two years.

It will be at March Braza Club on April 9 at 8pm.

Eight March boxers are expected to be on the bill, including England international Charlie Stevens.

March head coach Bernie Wing said: "We hope to hold about 12 to 14 bouts. We are hoping to get some Chatteris and Wisbech boxers involved as well.

"Everyone is really excited about it and I'm sure it will be a great show.

"We're already almost sold out of tickets for sit-down meals. There may be a few tickets left for people that want to stand, but I'd advise anyone interested in coming along to book tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment."

He added: "It's great to be able to put on the first show in about two years. The main problem has been that we've been unable to get the venue, but we're now expecting to hold another show at the Braza Club in December and then have to shows their next year."

Tickets are £30 for a seat and dinner and £10 for standing.

They can be bought by calling Wing on 07840 819057 or 01354 654648.

March ABC have training sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on their Century Way facilities from 6.30pm and newcomers are welcome.
