Cheshunt Boxing Club held their very first show of the year on March 2nd 2014. This show was a special show as it showcased the first round of the Home Counties Schoolboy Championships and featured a lot Cheshunt boys having their first bouts.
Head Coach Mark Bliss had this to say:
“It was good to see the youngsters having their first bouts, winning some losing some – it’s about gaining experience that counts, and these bouts will do just that.
"It was a great performance by Oliver Howlett he showed great courage in his bout, and Joe Voight’s showing was excellent, so all in all it was a satisfying few days for the club.”
Cheshunt Boxing Club will also be featured in the local newspaper, the Mercury, next week. You can read the full review by clicking here.
It is currently unclear as to when the next show will take place however it will most likely be in May 2014. We'll keep you updated, here on the blog.

Training Times have changed in order to help out Coach Will, whom runs the Nursery Class, as he is on his own on some nights. Coach Steve O'Hara had this to say:
"This change to the training times suits the needs of both boxers and coaches. More coaches will now be able to help out on the busy Nursery Class, making it more beneficial for the young boxers".

The Cheshunt Boxing Club held a Dinner Show on Saturday 14th December 2013 and it was a massive success! Out of all of the boxers from Cheshunt Boxing Club, who boxed on the show, only one of them got beat and even that was a close decision. The rest all won on a unanimous or majority points verdict.
Head Coach Mark Bliss said "The show was a great sucsess for the club and really showed that if you work hard, you can achieve."
He then added "I'd like to thank all of the people who made the show possible from the A.B.A Officials to the Club Volunteers, we simply can't thank you enough"
The next show date is unconfirmed however talks are arising of it happening sometime in March 2014. We'll update right here on the blog if we have any other news.
