Clovenstone Amateur Boxing Club had a special visitor today!
Dr Ching-Kuo Wu President of the Amateur International Boxing Association (AIBA) visited the gym as part of AIBA’s historic first visit to Scotland.
AIBA has been holding a week of meetings with Boxing Scotland to promote and work upon the recent successes in the sport and develop a new generation of boxing heroes. The President paid a visit to the local gym to celebrate their recent successes and congratulate them for all the hard work done by the gym and its staff.
