McCormick Ready To Tackle League

Queensbury Boxing League - McCormick Ready To Tackle League

Tonbridge rugby player James McCormick will swap the pitch for the ring next month when he makes his Queensbury debut at the big 2018 season opener.

The 24 year old will take time out from his regular Saturday fixture playing for Tonbridge Juddians to lace up the gloves and enter the ultra competitive Super middleweight division.

A former representative of the Sevenoaks amateur boxing club, McCormick competed over 30 times for the club including facing current QBL national middleweight champion Ben Davies, and on February 3rd the Tonbridge native will embark on a new chapter in his boxing career which he ultimately hopes will lead him to a second showdown with Davies.

“ I’ve been to lots of the leagues shows as a spectator and now I’m getting my opportunity to box on it which is very exciting, said McCormick.

“ It’s a big platform to compete on and there are lots of good fighters in my division so I believe I’ve got the style to do well in the show”

Standing in the opposite corner to McCormick on his debut will be big hitting Kent rival Arthur James who made a winning start to his league career back in November with an explosive first round knockout victory.

“I know the lad I’m boxing is strong and tall but I’ve been training really hard for this fight”

“ I’ve got plenty of my friends from the boxing side who will be coming out to support me as well as my rugby teammates who will also be there cheering me on”

“ Although the shows fans won’t have seen me box before I think they will like my come forward style so I can’t wait to get in there and put on a performance”

McCormicks Queensbury Boxing League debut will feature on the undercard of the 2018 season opener at the Copthorne Effingham Park Hotel on Saturday February 3rd. For further information on the event call the box office on 0203 751 8599
