Boxing clever to raise money
GAA clubs are very enterprising when they have to raise finance in these difficult times and it appears that what is called 'White Collar Boxing' has become the latest craze.
It started with the Kildare footballers a few years ago when many famous players put on the boxing gloves and entering the ring.
Bearing in mind the tendency of many players to engage in uppercuts and haymakers over the course of their football playing careers, this seems little more than a natural progression, but I wonder if some prominent recent ex-players will be even more interested in taking part?
I am sure some of them still have retained their boxing skills honed on the playing fields over many years.
