ON THE WORLD STAGE
MOCKA’S Boxing Club’s next crop of team members are making waves in the sport of boxing and now fight for an opportunity to represent Australia in the 2018 Commonwealth Games held at the Gold Coast.
For years on end, local trainer Ray ‘Mocka’ McIntosh has produced state and national title holders…now there is a chance his boxers could compete on the world stage.
Local boxers Donald Jones and Katie Barker have regularly impressed throughout 2017, taking to the ring on multiple occasions, showing upside and progression as the experience is gained.
On the weekend just gone, Jones was determined to win through to the qualifying stage. He did this and now the focus shifts to Sydney at the end of the month, when the Commonwealth Games trials begin.
