Rhoose new boy seeks Games gold

First published in Sport

NOW boxing out of the Rhoose club, Welsh amateur boxer Fred Evans will be seeking Commonwealth Games gold in Glasgow later this month.

Evans, a London Olympics silver medallist, is now under the guidance of new trainer and highly rated Welsh performance coach - "Barry Bomber" Michael Smyth - working alongside former champion Colin Jones. He will be competing in the 69kg division.

The Rhoose club extends special thanks to Vale-based SMK Building and Maintenance for their support.

Anyone interested in joining the Rhoose club can contact 01446-412508 or 07929428240.

Team Wales is set to take arguably its strongest-ever boxing squad to the Games and it also includes European champion Andrew Selby (52kg), of Barry. James Thomas, performance director for Welsh Boxing, said: “With the combination of experience and enthusiasm in the squad, I’m confident that Glasgow 2014 will be a great Games for us.”
