This year, the first in many years, the Yungaburra Boxing Gym put a float in the Atherton Maize Festival Mardi Gras street parade.
We received a welcome surprise when one of our financial sponsors and a great supporter asked on the spur of the moment if he could join us! So Ashley Cupitt helped Shane Knuth MP up onto the float.
The 2016 Atherton Maize Festival kindly donated the money raised by the Queen Quest Entrants to quite a few local groups, including us.
A few of our gym members met up at the Tolga Pub and watched the fight between Jeff Horn and Manny Pacquiao.
Fight is 3rd June 2017 – 4:45pm Bangkok time.
Melbourne (Australia – Victoria) at 7:45 pm
Cairns (Australia – Queensland) at 7:45 pm
London (United Kingdom) at 10:45 am
Dodoma (Tanzania) at 12:45 noon
