The Rumblings from Bouchie Lake

2 Rivers Boxing Club prepares for another rumble at the Bouchie Lake Hall.

Dan Mott prepares for the Dec. 15 Rumble in Bouchie Lake.

Bouchie Lake Hall will be the setting for another Rumble.

Saturday, Dec. 15, 2 Rivers Boxing Club will clash with boxers from across B.C. and even a couple Albertans.

Nothing is set in stone yet, but nine fighters from the club are looking forward to matches, with some out-of-towner bouts to round out the card.

Three neophytes are tentatively on the card; Erin Dale, Zayd Jalifi and Devon Star will all step into the ring for the first time.

The new boxers are excited and nervous for their first bouts, while Wally Doern, the gym’s coach, is excited to watch them test their mettle.

“Some (first-timers) are focused and use their training and others, for their first bout, they’ll end up almost forgetting everything they learned because they’re over eager,” Doern said.

“It’s a learning experience.”

The more experienced boxers are excited to get back in the ring.

Dan (Mayhem) Mott is looking to avenge himself on Randall Graham, while Kyle (The Motor) Tessier looks to keep his 3-0 record clean.

Both boxers have upped their training, with both Mott and Tessier working hard on their cardio to make sure they don’t run out of gas in the middle of the match.

Doors open for the event at 6 p.m. with bouts beginning at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door, while reserved ringside (sponsored) seats are available direct from  Doern, at 250-991-5061.
