Warwick boxer clubs a win

THEY call him “The Hurricane” and Warwick Boxing Club member Shane Parry is continuing on his winning ways.

On Saturday night, he recorded a hard-fought victory against highly rated Sam Nichol, of Gladstone, at a boxing tournament at Deception Bay.

The Gladstone boxer, who is regarded as a heavy-handed puncher, was himself rocked several times by the sustained onslaught of the young Warwick fighter who proved too fast and too aggressive for his older and more experienced opponent.

Warwick boxing gym trainers Roy and Rodd Parry said they were proud of their 17-year-old protege’s performance.

It was his third win in three bouts this year.

Roy said they hoped to promote bouts in Warwick later this year.

“Shane will head the program in either a state or Australian title bout,” Roy said.

The Warwick boxing gym at the western end of Albert Street is open each weekday from 4.30pm.

There are many different fitness and boxing groups that train hard each week and cater for all ages.
