Warwick challenger hopes to put on a good show in the ring

ALAN Fogarty has shed his fair share of blood and sweat inside the Warwick Boxing Club hall during the past two years and now he's ready to take to the ring in a big way.

When the Fred Brophy Boxing Troupe comes to town for the Warwick Show, Mr Fogarty will strap his wrists and clench his fists as he steps into the tent to take on the Brophy fighters.

"I've been doing the fitness side of things and sparring a few of the younger professionals but this is a whole different ball game," Mr Fogarty said.

He said it was at the Warwick Boxing Club where he learnt how to box.

"Dr Kiss, who takes some classes, got me into sparring and taught me all the skills I know," Mr Fogarty said.

"And Kyle Teer has taught me a lot too."

Mr Fogarty said while coming away with a win would be a bonus, he was going into the ring to "just have a go".

"I'll just try and stay away from him and out-work him I suppose."

The Brophy tent will be at the showgrounds on the night of Saturday, April 6.
