Book Launch Boxing Biography of Tony Borg Welsh Coach 2018 on Sunday 21st October 2018
Tony began life in Butetown as did author Amanda Aubrey-Burden (born Mandy Chambers) – just streets apart and within weeks of each other. School brought them together and boxing ties ensured a life-long association that has culminated in this unique project.
Neither resides in Cardiff anymore, but visit often, and as a tribute to family and our Tiger-bay heritage it seemed right we bring this project ‘home’. We’re thrilled to be able to host this event in the most beautifully-restored and historical of venues that will see all manner of groups and activities come together on the day.
Special guests will include Lee Selby, Matthew Hall, author of the Welsh hit series ‘Keeping Faith’ and maybe a cast member or two! Photographer Sarah Hopkins will be showcasing a medley of ‘Megan’s Boy Moments’, and there will also be an exhibition by International artist Patrick Killian.
‘Newport’s Rocky’ will be hosting a charity raffle, prizes that will include Selby signed gloves And Bristol-based Fight n Fit will be showcasing an exciting new gadget called ‘BoxMaster’ a revolutionary multiple-pad machine that will see some action by St. Joseph’s fighters on the day.
Massive THANKS to our Sponsors #CAPITALCABS of #Cardiff / #FIGHTNFIT from Bristol / CAMELOT FILMS London / FAB FELT of Newport / WE WILL DO ANY MORTGAGE from Barry / CHAMP BOXING Torfaen &the team at #CREATIVESPACE in Newport. We are absolutely thrilled to have you all as a part of this event! Thank you for SO much your support!
We’ll also be joined by ‘The Heritage & Cultural Exchange’ some of you will know as local charity and memorabilia group ‘Tiger Bay and the World’ who will be showcasing a recent exhibition. We’re also looking forward to having our old school Willows High with us on the day so we’ll endeavour to be on our best behaviour!
As usual this will be a friendly and informal event as Megan’s boy, Mrs Emma Borg and myself, will look forward to welcoming you all on the day.
