Rumble 31 will ring some bells at the 2Rivers Boxing Club.
West Park Mall’s boxing facility will open for some evening entertainment and sports power on April 15 as about 10 feature bouts plus some no-decision (exhibition) fights will showcase all manner of boxer.
Some adjustments are still being made.
“I will have roughly 10 or more Quesnel boxers on the card,” said veteran boxing coach and promoter Wally Doern. “The Mott family will be well represented with grandfather James Mott, 60 years old, boxing Duncan McLellan of Williams Lake. We are trying for a real match, so it may not be a no-decision match.
“James’ grandson and granddaughter will also be in the card.”
In a highly anticipated spectacle, longtime friends and 2Rivers Boxing Club successes Britynn Carter and Melissa O’Flynn will box each other. It will be a no-decision bout, but with Carter on Team BC as one of Canada’s rising stars, and O’Flynn coming back after some time off and hungry for battle, this sets up to be an interesting tilt.
“Robyn Grant will be boxing in the main event against Ella Meredith of Chilliwack,” said Doern.
“After a three-year layoff, heavyweight Evan Lee will be returning to box an opponent from Prince George.”
New 2Rivers boxers, Dante Audet, Kai Hanic, Jason Silva, Lily Scholpp, Taylor Rogina will also make their public boxing debut in the Rumble 31 ring, as well as the aforementioned Karter and Tamina Mott.
Doors open at 6 p.m., bouts are at 7 p.m.
Seating is limited so Doern recommends coming early to obtain a spectator spot. A sellout is entirely foreseeable.
Tickets are $30 available in advance at the 2Rivers Boxing Club or buy them online. Call Doern at 250-925-4834 for more information.
