HOLY Trinity Boxing Club have teamed up with enterprising outside broadcast company, Mobile Media, to showcase the club’s boxing talent to a worldwide audience on Thursday.

A 10-bout bill topped by senior star Jon McConnell, and featuring some of the club’s rising talent, will take place at the club’s Turf Lodge gym in west Belfast.

And the show will be broadcast live to a much wider audience via a new Mobile Media facility which allows the company to quickly deploy their outside broadcast (OB) set-up.

This boxing initiative follows on from successful OB screenings in other sports by the Mobile Media company, and will add a new dynamic to local sporting events.

“We’ll have around 10 bouts featuring our Antrim, Ulster and Irish championship contenders from schools up to our top elite grade,” said club and matchmaker Michael Hawkins jr.

“It’s an exciting time for us, linking up with Mobile Media. Showcasing our boxers with live footage on YouTube and our social media platforms is a first for us.”

Mobile Media executive Paul Heaney said: “The evening follows on from the club’s 50th anniversary and highlights the start of looking ahead to the next 50 years, so it’s an absolute honour to be involved and to be taking out our new outside broadcast facility for the event.

“If anyone is thinking of video for recording, streaming or even broadcasting any type of event, please get in touch. We can easily and quickly deploy at most type of events, almost anywhere.

“We work with even the tightest of budgets a lot of the time. It doesn’t always mean giving all the bells and whistles, but solutions that work.”
