After a great evening of boxing on Saturday 30th april 2016, Bergen Boxing klubb and coach Lee Harris has received great feedback from everybody that attended this event held at the spacious and pictures Quality Hotel Edvard Grieg in Sandsli, Bergen.
The show started with a merkekamp and then a diploma match Between for a couple of young boys too young to compete in a real match. Both these matches were very entertaining and gave these future boxers a chance to box on the show...
After a short break the show started with 2 junior bouts and 3 youth bouts. All matches involved boxers from local boxing clubs in Hordaland. One of these bouts gave us the first international bout between one of our visitors from Most Boxing Club from the Czech Republic and Hadi from Bergen Sparta. Hadi Sparta won this match after three very enjoyable rounds.
Whilst our V.I.P's enjoyed their first salmon meal and dessert, we took a break. After this break we enjoyed 5 senior bouts. 2 of them international bouts between Most and a local club. First off was Feras Sami Hamada vs Jakub Adamek. Feras did a great stoppage in his first bout as a senior. The next bout was Veronica Losvik vs Daniella Hrdlickova. Veronica was just another class, showing some great ring skills and winning the title as Boxer of the Evening that was presented to her by one of Bergens Professional boxing World Champions, Tim-Robin Lihaug.
As the evening went on, we saw more great matches in front of a full house of 300 people. A big thank you to the officials, the doctor, the boxers, coaches and clubs who participated in the event. My crew from Bergen Boxing Klubb and my boxers that represented the club all gave their best for me and themselves, they should be proud of themselves.
As promotor of this event on behalf of Bergen Boxing klubb, I had a vision in my head when I was approached by the Quality Hotel Edvard Grieg . The vision was a full house of every club in Bergen would be represented and to bring an overseas club in along with a setting that you will see in the pictures ..
Thank you to you all for helping me in this vision - it was beautiful! Dare to dream and just do it, as I tell all my students...
Till the next event.
