Team Leigh Boxing's Eleven year old Kian Flanagan has won the 2014 National Schoolboys Minors Title. The unbeaten youngster who turned in impressive performances in every round of the championships, beat Guildford City's David Tierney in the Final in Walkden, Manchester.

Team Leigh Boxing are inviting all local people (male & female) between the ages of 7yrs and 40yrs to come along to Leigh Boxing & Fitness Gym and Wigan Youth Zone (11-19yrs) to see if they have the potential to follow in the footsteps of Leigh ABC boxers who have won over 100 Regional and National ABA titles, represented England and gone on to make their mark in the Professional ranks. Current boxers including Adam Ridge, Matty Burgess, Steve Backhouse, Paddy Brown, Michael Connor, Josh Waterworth, John Turner, Sean Connor and others who all train at Leigh Boxing & Fitness Gym and have had over 300 bouts between them, and are part of a successful 30+ strong squad who box regularly throughout the country.
While the facilities at Leigh Boxing & Fitness Gym and Wigan Youth Zone are available to anyone who just wants to improve their fitness, the qualified and experienced 12 person Coaching Team are keen to help more local youngsters advance to competition level and join in the boxing success being brought to the Leigh and Wigan area by Leigh ABC.

Marcus is NACYP National Champion ! (4 Dec '10)


Leigh ABC's Marcus Morrison has been crowned the NACYP National Welterweight Champion for 2010. In a devastating display of speed and power, Marcus beat Repton ABC star boxer Ben Hall 16-9 in Portsmouth on saturday afternoon. The bout could have been over in the first minute as Marcus crashed a massive right, forcing Hall to take a standing eight count, and then continually bombarded the London based boxer who was fortunate to see out the round. To Hall's credit though, he dug deep but was continually struggling to cope with the Leigh boxer's hand spped and accuracy. Heavy right hands in both the second and third round again confirmed Marcus' dominance, leaving the result beyond doubt. A fantastic win for Marcus, Leigh ABC and the town !

Young people stay on right track through boxing




Police in West Leigh are encouraging young people to get in the boxing ring and off the streets.

The scheme, which takes place at Leigh Amateur Boxing Club on Scott Street in Leigh, is part of the X-Zones initiative run by Wigan Council.

This aims to get young people across the borough involved in positive activities as a way of reducing anti-social behaviour and keeping them fighting fit.

PC Andy Doran of the Leigh West Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) said: “This is a fantastic way for young people to get involved in sport and learn self-discipline. Those that run the boxing club are committed to working with them and offer a fantastic service to the community. I would encourage people to come down and get involved.”

Adrian Fleming, head coach at Leigh Amateur Boxing Club, added: “We are only too happy to help get young people into sport to keep them on the right track in life, and I would encourage anyone interested to come along to one of our sessions.”

Training sessions (£1.50 for under 16s):
· Junior class for 7-13s: Monday & Friday from 6pm to 7pm
· Senior class for 14yrs and over: Monday to Friday from 6.30pm to 8pm


Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service


Leigh ABC Head Coach Adrian Fleming was on Wish FM Radio on friday morning talking about the club's work with local Youth Services and GM Police in running the successful X Zone initiative which encourages local youngsters to use the facililities at Leigh Boxing & Fitness Gym free of charge on Friday evenings.
