Boxer puts hand up for show fight

CHRIS Fox has fighting in his blood.

From the age of 10, he has looked and felt as comfortable in a pair of boxing gloves as the fighters he admires.

As the grandson of Warwick's former boxing club president, Sel Brackin, it was only natural Mr Fox would follow in his footsteps into the ring.

And at the Warwick Show this year, he's heading for the Fred Brophy Famous Boxing Troupe, fists blazing.

"I love just jumping in and having a crack," Mr Fox said.

But this will not be his first time in the Brophy tent.

"Me and another bloke had a tag team fight at Clifton a few years ago and got a draw," he said.

Mr Fox hopes to do one better this year and take home a win.

His near-exploding trophy cupboard proves he has had some good results out of the 110 amateur and 10 professional fights spanning his boxing career.
