Monaghan's Prizefighters 3

We came we saw we made some videos. Check them out over in Monaghan's Prizefighters 3 The Fights
 
Didcot Town Football Club is the place to be on Friday 28th June at 7.00pm for what I can only describe as a night of thrilling bouts of boxing action as good as any you will see at any show in the country.

Tyrone's Parcel of Rogues are ready to rumble again this time to raise funds for Chest, Heart and Stroke.

Rogues? Maybe. Hearts of Gold? No doubt about it. The fighters supporters get right behind not only their fighter, but if the other guy is short of support they will give them a good show of appreciation. An example of the type of guys the rogues are is shown here by what happened this weekend. We had a show ourselves in aid of the family of David Young who was murdered New Years Eve in Rainham Kent.

Tom Brennan and team travelled down to support us from Oxford. Top guys in our book. Tyrone is the first Promoter to include Tag Team Boxing on the fight card which is an unusual bout to watch for the first time but when you get past the fact there are four guys taking part and the fact they can tag in and out as you would see in a wrestling match you'll notice that this adds a whole new dimension as tactics come into play around the tagging.

Tyrone even had a Wing Chun bout at Prizefighters 2 which is quite a rare thing to see period let alone in a boxing ring. Prizefighters 3 promises much of the same action so don't miss out.

If you are a budding boxer you would find this a good place to have your first fight and if you have never been to a boxing show then this is a good show to go and see.

Sadly due to injury that has come to light sustained before his last fight on PrizeFighters 2 it has been decided by all concerned that he should not fight until he is 100% fit. A good decision by those concerned as his long term career is important and at PrizeFighters Fight Night we hope to see him many more times in the future. This is what Troopz had to say to us in an interview before he had too pull out.
