A record number of people are expected to attend a boxing day sale at Waverley Boxing Club where fighters from around the world fight their first bouts aga바카라사이트inst each other.
At 1.30pm on Saturday, Boxing Day, Waverley will be selling up to 6.5m shirts, 10kgs of beer and more than 500kg of merchandise including T-shirts, hats, underwear and boxing gloves, the club confirmed to The Sunday Times.
„There are more people on the floor than we have for any previous boxing sale anywhere in the country,“ said Dave Hall, chief executive of the Waverley Boxing Club. „We’ve sold out the last three sold out shows, three of which have had 10,000 in the queue before we took the first ticket and all the others with 10,000 in the queue before the ticket was sold out, so there will be more of a queue this year.“
Hall added: „Waverley is a small venue, but we got some good, locally made merchandise with some great fights and fans coming from all over Australia too.“
With a record of selling over a million tickets since the venue opened in 1992, Boxing Day is being closely watched as a landmark event in the boxing calendar. „It’s a real testament to Waverley’s support for boxing and to the people coming in to buy tickets that are being handed out for $20 to $25 per night,“ said David Eardley, chief executive of the Australia Boxing Foundation, which organises the box-office in the city.
Waverley is also celebrating the 100th anniversary of its inception last year when a special performance by Joe Smith, former Olympic and Commonwealth boxing champion, was one of the main attractions.
Smith is best known for defeating his opponent in the London Olympics by 10 points우리카지노 in one minute and 37 seconds in 1950 when Smith fought a man called Charles Thompson.
Although many of Smith’s bouts were in the ring with people outside the ring, such as former world champion George Foreman, he 카지노 사이트enjoyed huge support from his community.
„Smith became an overnight success, and this will be his 100th career fight when he faces Manny Pacquiao on January 24,“ said Dave Hall, CEO of the Waverley Boxing Club. „It’s a remarkable feat, and Smith’s fight is one that will set off the fireworks in this tow
