Former Islington Boxing Club boxer Slavisa Gegic paid a visit to his old club.
Gegic dropped by to present a pair of tickets for his pro debut on Saturday, August 7 2021 at York Hall, Bethnal Green promoted by Mo Prior.
In what has become a recent tradition at the club, IBC treat a member of their Junior Competitive Squad to a night of professional boxing, which features a former member of the club - usually their pro debut or a title contest.
Brady Loftus, 14, was chosen unanimously by the Junior Club Coaches to be the recipient of two tickets to the much-anticipated debut of Gegic, which will also feature former National Elite Champion Masood Abdullah in his second pro contest - an ex-amateur with IBC and teammate of Gegic.
Gegic said: “I was honoured to present Brady with the pair of tickets to my debut, he is a good choice and was clearly delighted to be chosen. My training camp has been great, and I can’t wait to finally make my pro debut.”
