Some of Wexford's best athletes will be swapping their hurls for boxing gloves on Friday night during an all-action white collar boxing tournament at St. Joseph's Club.

The athletes, from Wexford Celtic Soccer Club, Adamstown GAA, the Volunteers and St. Joseph's have been training hard as boxers for the past six weeks under the tutelage of Donal Walsh and St. Ibar's and Joseph's boxing coaches.

Billy Codd, from St. Joseph's, said there will be 11 fights on the night, with the doors opening at 6.30 p.m. and the first bout getting under way at 7.30 p.m.

National title holder Dean Walsh will be a guest on the night and a film will be shown of his title bout during the interval.

Billy said tickets were 'flying out of the door' but some are still available from the club. Call 087 2995685 or (053) 9145269 to book.
