Boxing is back in the big M | Photos

Boxing enthusiasts from near and far packed out the services club auditorium on Saturday evening to watch the action-packed event.

The event Cheetham literally called ‘Boxing is Back in the Big M’ saw 24 fighters enter the ring from Moree, Armidale, Nyngan, Bathurst, Gunnedah, Kingscliff and Coffs Harbour.

Moree Boxing Academy’s Cody Moore took on Inverell’s Josh Desborough in the main, and final, event of the evening.

In the red corner, with coach Cheetham beside him, Moore weathered the storm that was Desborough to win the north west welterweight title by a unanimous points decision.
