Boxing Australia Futures Camp at the AIS

Boxing Australia assembled 18 of Australia’s best young boxers into a week-long camp at the Australian Institute of Sport.

The squad includes 15-year-old Nikita Tszyu, son of Kostya, and 17-year-old 2011 world champion Clay Waterman.

The boys were put through their paces by coaches, including Mark Wilson and Don Abnett, and received specialist strength and conditioning advice from AIS expert Ross Smith.

The squad members will continue their preparation for the world junior championships on 17–26 August 2013 in Kiev.

  1. There are many boxers in Australia who are dreaming to be a professional boxer someday, but mostly Mexico and Philippines make history in boxing world.

  2. That would be interesting to watch the gym and its members grow as time goes by. I would be happy to give some inspiration to them.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
