Boxer shares his skills

BIG hitter Chris Woods made an appearance at a boxing club in Annan this week to coach youngsters in the fundamentals of being a professional boxer.

The orthodox fighter discussed everything which is crucial when in the ring, such as balance, punching and shape.

He said: “It’s good obviously myself living in Dumfries, getting the chance to meet the kids at this local club and give something back to the youngsters with enthusiasm and experience which they can take into boxing.”

Over 50 youngsters were put through their paces by Woods, who is now seven fights undefeated since turning professional in 2018. He said: “Something like boxing, they call it the sweet science because it takes years and years of practise to master it all. I have not even mastered it all myself.

“The youngsters need to learn about balance, co-ordination and other components such as positioning and defence.”

Solway Spartans head coach Terry Bruton said: “It’s fantastic to have Chris here, I know him from the boxing circuit. “It’s not every day you have a professional boxer coming through the doors.”
