Fight night raises funds for PCYC programs
Umina Beach PCYC ran a fight night at Woy Woy Leagues Club on May 11 which has raised $14,000 for its youth programs.
There were 22 bouts of amateur boxing on the program, featuring top boxers from all over the Central Coast and Sydney, with some visiting internationals from Fiji that also fought on the card.
Boxing clubs from the Coast included G-6, Team Business, Central Coast Boxing and Impact.
"All Coast boxers were very impressive on one of the best cards of boxing delivered for many years," said PCYC club manager Mr Matt Cooper.
"The highlight of the night and crowd favourite was an incredible bout between locals Steve Hunt from Central Coast Boxing and Impact's Daniel Sumners."
Hunt went down to Sumners in a close fought battle, he said.
"All the bouts were very even and well matched and the crowd was supportive of the action on display," Mr Cooper said.
The fight night was followed by a Super Sparring Day at the PCYC on May 12 where boxers from all over NSW use the club's 10 rings to get quality sparring with a variety of opponents.
Mr Cooper said the club planned on making Super Sparing Days a regular occurrence at the PCYC with the next event scheduled to take place on June 16.
The club also planned on holding another fight night at Woy Woy Leagues Club on October 19.
