BOXING: Warwick Boxing Club member Shane Parry will take a three-month break from the sport after turning professional in the past year.

After turning professional, he won his first fight by knockout.

In his most recent fight, Shane was knocked out by a boxer Dean Mullivia who competed in the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

Due to the knockout and a sprained ankle, Parry will not fight until early 2013.

"We want to give his ankle plenty of time to recover," his trainer/father, Rodd Parry, said. "Next year he plans to work even harder to make a career as a professional boxer."

Shane has been sparring at Smith's Gym in Toowoomba against boxers trained by Brendon Smith who took Michael Katsidis to a world title.

Before his loss last week, Shane was training daily at the Warwick Boxing Club gymnasium.

His younger brother Shaun will fight in a corporate bout at Smith's Fight Night at Rumours in Toowoomba tonight.

Warwick-based boxer Kyle Teer is also on the card at Rumours.
