MOST sports run in the family and for Darren Thompson it's a passion for boxing that flows through his veins.

Mr Thompson will step up to the plate in Fred Brophy's boxing tent and bump fists with some top fighters at the Warwick Show.

Mr Thompson had a crack at the Fred Brophy Famous Boxing Troupe when it came to Clifton a couple of years ago.

"I fought White Lightning and got a draw, but this time I have been training a bit so I should hopefully get a win," Mr Thompson said.

He said his father used to be the assistant coach at the Warwick Boxing Club and he spent many years, from the age of 10, down at the ring in a pair of gloves.

Now a father himself, Mr Thompson said he drilled into his kids that the only kind of fighting worth having was one in a boxing tent.

"I like causing pain the right way, none of this street fighting," he said.

"My old man used to say 'only horses kick'."

With his fellow boxing mates also stepping up to have a crack in the Brophy tent, Mr Thompson said he would like to see the Warwick boys dominate.

"Hopefully we should all get a win," he said.

If you're going to have a crack in the tent, let us know so we can give a shout out to our local lads and ladies brave enough to take on the pros.

Phone Georja Ryan on 4660 1316.
