Boxing-MainThis will be a fantastic night of amateur boxing headlined by several match-ups between players from the Carrickfergus Knights and the Belfast Trojans. Two of the most successful American Football teams in Ireland, the Knights and Trojans, will substitute the helmet and pads for a pair of boxing gloves and take their heated rivalry to the ring.

The organisers, the Carrickfergus Boxing Club, will also demonstrate their skills as members of their youth and senior clubs will take part in exhibition bouts on the undercard. This great event will take place on Friday, 13 March in the main ball room of the Clarion Hotel Carrickfergus. Doors open at 7pm.

VIPs are currently being confirmed and will be announced soon.

There will be raffles and collections on the night with the proceeds going to Stroke Association NI.
