SECURING A JOSHUA LEGACY FOR WELSH BOXING

Massive interest in the Anthony Joshua international boxing title matches held in Cardiff will drive growth in boxing, but could challenge the resources of Amateur Boxing Clubs in Wales, according to Neil McEvoy AM.

Neil McEvoy AM said “Wales has been granted a tremendous opportunity to build on the incredible resolve and determination of the Wales wide network of amateur boxing clubs, which have transformed so many lives for the better.

“In Wales we have always punched above our weight in the quality of boxers we produce, but now we need to make sure the interest in the Joshua matches brings lasting benefits to boxing in Wales.”

Anthony Joshua’s second match held in south Wales will bring his own WBA and IBF belts into contention with Joseph Parker’s WBO title on March 31st at the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff while millions of spectators will also watch it around the world.

Ten days before Joshua meets Joseph Parker for their unification heavyweight showdown, the Cross Party Group (CPG) on Boxing, sponsored by Neil McEvoy AM, will meet in Cardiff Bay to discuss the future of Amateur Boxing in Wales.

The CPG Boxing meeting (Wednesday, March 21st, 6.30 for 7-8pm, Committee Room 5, Tŷ Hywel, Cardiff Bay) is open to the public and free, but places must be booked in advance on the Eventbrite.co.uk website:
