Abbeyknockmoy Hurling Club in association with Ulster football proudly present a boxing exhibition night on Friday 28th December at 7:30pm in the Abbey Inn. 

The boxers comprise some of our senior and junior players and are being put through their paces as we speak. Drug testers will be visiting each fighter and will give two months notice in the interests of fairness.

We are still finalising the amount of bouts on the night but you can expect between 5 and 10 fights.

This promises to be a great night’s entertainment and we hope you can call down to see athletes in prime condition test their skills against one another.

Spot prizes and raffle on the night.

We could have had the fight night on Boxing day but you would have been blown away with the puns. The 28th was a fair call then.

Tickets cost just €10 from any club member or at the door. Hopefully you can go and sample the unique atmosphere in the Abbey Inn.

We will be keeping our social media pages updated on this the next few weeks. Plenty of news about the fighters will be leaked to the media also.

The sympathy of the club goes to the King family in Abbey on the death of Fiona in Castlerea and to the Flaherty family on the death of Joe or Sid as he was better known.
