UL boxing club Ireland’s most successful Olympic sport has been established in UL since 2011.Since then it has captured a total of 3 National IATBA titles and 2 Silver medals in its two seasons. Last season 4 UL boxers were picked for the IATBA Irish select vs the Irish Defence Forces in a friendly. They made of a third of the Irish team that night, a huge achievement!These four boxers made up the IATBA Panel for the season. The club managed to turn out 5 novice boxers into the amateur ranks as they featured beside the seasoned campaigners of the club over two weekends in local club, st Francis which is the oldest club in the country. This season the club has its eyes firmly set on the Celtic cup in Waterford where it is sending a full squad to the international tournament which takes place from the 27th to the 29th of September and we invite anyone to come see our boys in action. Our more experienced boxers will then compete in provincial and national tournaments before christmas. Second semester will be a chance for any new members to shine as we hope to train up some new dedicated novices to compete in the intervarsities in February. Our training focuses mainly on fitness and agility, as well as practising the skills of boxing. A full body workout will consist of circuit training, skipping and core exercises. Members will have access to everything from boxing pads, bags and gloves to sparring fights and one-to-one training with coaches. An excellent way to meet people who share a common interest in boxing, as well as an enjoyable activity away from stress of college studies, UL boxing club is welcoming members to join this semester :)
