DICKY’S GYM in Batley was renamed Trinity Boxing Centre on Tuesday night, with a host of famous boxers on show at the relaunch.
The move comes as owner Mark Hurley looks to promote boxing in the area and entice new people to take part in the sport.
Hurley also hopes the rebranding will attract more boxing fans to the professional bouts of some of the gym’s most promising boxers, including Josh Warrington, Jack Churchill, Femi Fehintola and Reece Mould.
The gym’s star fighter, Warrington, is preparing for a world title fight this year and is also fighting Kiko Martinez at Leeds’ First Direct Arena on May 13 with Olympic gold medallist Nicola Adams on the undercard.
But Hurley is also keen to develop newcomers to the sport. Anyone interested in getting involved and training alongside some of the brightest boxing prospects in the country can contact Hurley on 0776 3246865.
Anyone over the age of 15 is welcome to attend public classes that take place Monday to Wednesday 7pm to 8.30pm. Juniors can also train Sunday mornings and those sessions start at 11:30am.
