Swimming Performance Director Dave Tonge enjoyed victory in his first charity boxing match over the weekend. The white-collar event at the Vale Resort involved contenders fighting in 3, two-minute rounds with friends and family supporting from the side.
The event run by Elite Fitness gives people the opportunity with little or no boxing experience to train in an 8 week block with the fight coming at the end of training. Dave was fully committed to the cause, training over five sessions a week in boxing circuits, sparring and well as other general fitness sessions.
After the fight dave thanked is friends, family and trainers for the support over the last 8 weeks as well as his opponent for “a hell of a contest”. After saying the night for one of the best of his life we will have to wait and see if the gloves come back on for one more fight.
Well done Dave!!
