In the right corner, Alex Arthur, former British, European and WBO Champion. In the left corner, 2013 Grand National winning jockey Ryan Mania, from Galashiels.
True sportsmen and gentlemen both, the lads were on hand to support the official opening of Galashiels Boxing Club’s new venue in the former United Reform Church in Union Street last Friday night.
The opening was hailed as a great community event by all in attendance. Well done everyone involved in making it happen, Alex said the club was one of the best he had seen in Scotland, high praise indeed.
