Craig takes on Richards this weekend

SGS Boxer Natalie Craig travels to Ireland this Friday (25th March) to take on Irish International and World championship bronze medallist Joanne Richards.

Richards won her bronze, the AIBA World Youth and Junior Championships in Taipei, Taiwan in May, whilst Natalie had an impressive season winning the Celtic Box Cup in Ireland, the Golden Girl championship in Sweden, the NAB&G National Championship and the England Boxing National Youth Championship.

She was then selected for the National development team. Natalie said: “I am delighted to again be boxing in Ireland with 8 of my team mates from Downend Boxing Club.  Joanne is top quality opposition, and I’m looking forward to a great bout.”

The contest takes place in New Ross in southwest county Wexford.

SGS Head of Boxing Craig Turner said: “The audience is bound to be buzzing, and we are looking forward a showcase of the best female boxing can offer.”
