Bolton Legends Team v Team Boxing
26 May, 2019 - 12:30pm
Farnworth Social Circle Boxing Club
TWO Wanderers legends are leading their teams into a battle in the boxing ring, John McGinlay and Tony Kelly have partnered up with Team V Team Boxing to host a white-collar event on May 26 to raise funds for Bolton Hospice.
McGinlay and Kelly will be joining in the training sessions, taking the fitness classes and will be in the corners of their fighters on the day.
“Tony and I have a big rivalry on and off the pitch and now it’s going to carry on into the ring,” said McGinlay. “More importantly though is raising money for a fantastic Bolton charity.”
Kelly, meanwhile, is out to avenge his defeat by McGinlay’s team in the 2016 Legends football match at the University of Bolton Stadium.
“It’s payback time for the game where John stitched me up,” he declared. “John had the first pick of players, then second and third.
“Now it’s payback time – it will get settled in the ring but most importantly Bolton Hospice will be the winner.”
