Sligo woman takes on ‘Oz’ boxing challenge for North West Stop

Sligo native Sarah Melvin, now living in Sydney, is taking part in a Charity Fight Night in memory of her friend and neighbour, Michael Cryan of Sligo who passed away in 2016.

The ‘Corporate Fighter’ event sees amateur boxers go though an intensive 10-week training regime with a professional coach, culminating in a Charity Fight Night bout in The Star, Sydney, this Saturday, December 18th.

Sarah is using the event to fundraise for North West Stop – the suicide prevention organisation.

She spoke to Ocean FM Sport’s Austin O’Callaghan.
