A TOP team from Islington Boxing Club have added extra punch to their CVs after completing the England Boxing Level 1 coaching course.

The seven-strong line-up, including welterweight Slavisa Gegic who recently turned pro, were put through their paces by England Boxing tutor and evaluator Mike Hunter at IBC’s home gym in Hazellville Road, Upper Holloway.

“The club would like to congratulate all of our members who passed the Level 1 coaches’ course and look forward to bringing their knowledge and experience to our boxing teams and sessions,” said Reggie Hagland, a coach and manager of the IBC.

“We hope that they all go on to complete the Level 2 course this time next year.

“I also want to thank Mike Hunter, who arranged for this course to happen at the club, which gave our coaches an added boost being in similar surroundings. We look forward to hosting more courses at the club in the near future.”
