Boxers to take charge at club



THE gentle sport of lawn bowls will take a back seat to boxing at the Condong Bowling Club tomorrow night.

The Murwillumbah Boxing Club will host a 15-bout fight night featuring Tweed boxers up against fighters from Queensland and Northern NSW.

Murwillumbah's Gopal Staples will take on Dalby's Troy Hooper in the night's feature event, a featherweight bout over four two-minute rounds.

"Both fighters are very experienced so it promises to be a very even and closely contested bout," Stone said.

Murwillumbah heavyweight Stuart Emms will make his comeback on the night while teenager David Toussaint who lives at Wyrallah, via Lismore, will make his NSWdebut.

Toussaint, now 14 years old, had been too young to fight in NSW and had to fight in Queensland where he has an impressive 8-0 record.

"This kid has got plenty of talent and on Saturday night you might see a champion in the making," Stone said.

Six fighters from new Tweed boxing club Ruffnut will also make appearances.

Doors will open at 6pm with the first fight to start about 7pm. Enquiries (02) 6672 2238.
