Heart of Portsmouth Boxing Club

Heart of Portsmouth Boxing Academy was the venue for the season’s 2nd Southern Counties Regional Female Squad, Sunday 19th September 2010. With the absence of Southern Counties Regional Coach Matt Bell, the session was headed up by ABA Advanced Coach Q Shillingford (HOP) and assisted by HOP Coaches Colin Williams and Yinka Bello.

A total of 17 Female boxers (from 11yrs to 25yrs) attended the session that ran from 10:00 till 12pm. After a good warm up, and lots of partner work, the boxers used both rings for lots of sparring, each female boxer got at least 4 – 8 rounds of sparring.

SWALES ABC arrived to the squad session with an impressive 10 Female boxers and 5 coaches all of which were padding and working with the female squad throughout the session. Also in attendance and preparing for her England Debut at the European Junior Championships in October 2010 was Kayleigh Taylor (SWALES ABC). Crawley ABC coach George Brown arrived with 2 female boxers and again padded the team throughout the session.

“Q” added: Yet again another good show of support from the Southern Counties female boxers and coaches, female boxing in the Southern Counties is looking very good especially at this early stage in the season and is a tribute to the boxing clubs hard work. The intention is to put on an all female boxing show later in the season.
