TRAINING is in full swing for the Irish Heart Foundation's 'Big Fight Night', taking place in the INEC, Killarney on November 15.
The volunteer boxers are now well accustomed to training regimes, diet changes and boxing skills required for preparation for the night, with the training programme commencing last month.
The fighters, ranging from 19 year-old students to 40 year-old men, have been building up their fitness through though cardiovascular sessions with Army Corporal John Cashman. The group have also been honing their skills in the ring, with boxing coaches Daniel and Kieran showing them the ropes.
The Big Fight Night takes place on November 15 and tickets, which cost €20, are available from the INEC Box Office on (064) 66 71555.
