More than 300 people will be cheering on Ludlow Amateur Boxing Club's fighters tonight at Ludlow Racecourse
MORE than 300 people will be cheering on Ludlow’s leading amateur boxers tonight (Friday).
Nine local fighters will be lacing up their gloves to raise money for Ludlow Amateur Boxing Club’s new headquarters.
The dinner show takes place at Ludlow Racecourse and club spokesman Colin Woodfield is expecting ‘a cracking night of entertainment’.
“We had some great fights at our last show and we are expecting a cracking night of entertainment,”
said former club chairman Woodfield.
Woodfield’s son, Chadd Woodfield, will be fighting for the first time since winning a gold medal at the Redditch Schools Box Cup in June.
Ashley Moule and Terry Dean Smith will be defending their unbeaten records for the season.
Arnold Edmonds, Chris Preece, James Key, Tom Morris, Charlie Barnfield and Joseph Johnstone are the other Ludlow boxers expected to feature.
“There will be around nine of our own lads on the card and between 11 and 14 contests in total,” said Woodfield. “We are expecting more than 300 people – but there are still tables – and places on tables – available.”
Proceeds from the show will go towards new equipment and the running cost of the new club at the recreation g round near Sandpits Road.
Ludlow Amateur Boxing Club’s new base is being opened on Saturday, November 9.
Chadd Woodfield and Ter ry Dean Smith were the two successful Ludlow fighters in the club’s last dinner show, which took place in March.
The doors will be opening at 6.30pm tonight with the boxing action getting under way at around 8pm.
Tickets for the sit-down meal cost £35 per person but fans wanting to just watch the boxing can pay £12 on the door.
