Micky's Athletic

Micky’s Athletic Boxing Gym

We are proud to be working alongside Porky’s Corner to help raise money for Micky’s Athletic Boxing Gym in Mexbrough.

Micky’s Athletic is the home of the outlaw British bantamweight champion Josh Wale. It was first established by Mick Wale Josh’s father and later closed. Josh has since reopened the gym in his fathers name.

A group of volunteer coaches including Josh and his dad Mick, give up their time for free to run the gym sessions, which include Boxing classes, Woman’s Only classes and Keep Fit.

The Gym trains both professional and amateur boxers with some 30 members ranging from the age of 9 upwards. Several boxers are fighting at competition level.

Micky’s Athletic is self funded all money donated goes towards the upkeep of the gym, equipment and ABA England registration fees.

If you are interested in joining or would like more information give them a follow on twitter @mickys_athletic or get in touch with Josh Wale on twitter @jboyoutlaw

Porky’s Corner will be donating all profits from his clothing range to Micky’s Athletic. This will help them get more young kids involved in boxing and into the the gym. Grab your Porky’s Corner Clothing today and help make a difference for the future generations. #BeTheOne
