IRISH BOXING: McGuigan establishes boxing academy

Irish boxing legend Barry McGuigan is taking further steps to improve the welfare of fighters with the launch of his first Boxing Academy.

The Clones Cyclone, who in 1985 became WBA featherweight champion, launched the educational and sporting programme in Leicester on Saturday. It is hoped the Academy will help up and coming boxers to achieve and excel in their academic and sporting goals. McGuigan has previously worked at the forefront of boxers rights with his involvement in the Professional Boxer’s Association.
