Greg Harrison is already looking forward to his next amateur boxing show.
The former Ladner boxer turned trainer who runs Harrison Boxing recently held a card in Richmond where the night proved to be a success.
"We would like to thank everyone that attended our December event," said Harrison. "We had a spectacular night of amateur boxing and managed to raise about 100 pounds of food for the local food bank."Our next event won't be happening until about the same time next year, at which time I am hoping to raise at least four times as much food and host more than one title fight. Thank you to all our volunteers and press outlets that made this possible."
The main event saw North Burnaby Boxing Club's Ron Pryce stopping George Vourtsis of the Sunshine Coast in the third round. "It was an exciting fight that gave new and old boxing fans a great night," added Harrison.
The crowd was also treated to an exhibition round of women's boxing with Sarah Pucek (City Boxing) and Jamie Ward. Le Stage Boxing, Beyond Boxing, Aegis, Ocean City, Port Kells, and Action Boxing were also represented at the amateur boxing event.
The Harrison boxing program is based on some very basic principles. It develops a high cardiovascular level of fitness to help perform techniques properly, but most importantly the program is based upon the theory. For more information visit www.harrisonboxing.com
