3rd Bout: Vella vs Connors.
Maltese boxing promoter Paul Borg and The European Boxing Federation organised a night of boxing held at Sky Club in Paceville. Apart from the 7 bouts a very special guest ‘Big Joe’ Egan, was present. ‘Big Joe’ is a famous Irish Heavy Champion who was also Mike Tyson’s sparring partner.
The night started off with a supporting bout between two young local boxers followed by 5 bouts between Maltese and British boxers. Each one had 4 rounds of two minutes each. The final and much awaited fight was between local heavy weight champion ‘The Hit Man’ Billy Corito and ex professional Ian Toby. This was won in the 2nd round by KO by The Hit Man.
Sky Club was packed with local fans cheering on our boxers.
