MP for Hornsey and Wood Green
When I watched Nicola Adams win her gold (on TV) – I was over the moon. Many reasons: first woman boxer to win gold, amazing determination – and she did a lot of her boxing in Haringey. So when I was invited to Haringey Police Amateur Boxing Club fund-raising dinner – at which Nicola and Ricky Hatton (said to be about to make a come back) were the guest speakers – I went.
It was last night – and a real pleasure to meet such a genuine champion in all ways.
I have long been a supporter of this great local boxing club. In our area – this most disciplined of sports – does nothing but good.
A big well done and thank you to Gerry Willmott and Kenny Marsh – whose dedication and effort drive the club.
And now a gold medal winner to add to their manysuccesses.
