Oasis Health Club Boxing Club

boxerWe are proud to announce that we are now supporting amateur boxers with our new Oasis Boxing Club. We’ve teamed up with Ringside promotions and are supporting both Liam Sparrow and John Ferguson in their journey to boxing at professional level.

Oasis supports the lads with a free gym membership and use of our training facilities such as the pads, bags and our boxmaster. Here’s an article from the Chronicle:

” …Ashington., renowned as the breeding ground of top footballers, has two new pro boxers embarking upon an exciting journey.

Liam Sparrow and John Ferguson this week signed for Mark Clauzel’s Ringstar Promotions and will make their debuts in July after all the medicals, paperwork, and gym honing are completed.

Both have graduated from the hard school of white-collar boxing and are looking to make an immediate impression under trainer Keith Macdonald.

Sparrow, 25, also has an amateur background with North Northumberland and Newbiggin and will fight as a super middleweight.

“My dad took me to the gym on my 16th birthday because I was getting into a bit of trouble and he wanted me to taste some discipline,” he explained.

“I knocked out my first opponent in the first minute!

“I had a break from boxing because of my job but I then took up white collar, where I’m unbeaten in nine bouts.

“I first trained under Keith as a kid and he got in touch with me again out of the blue before Christmas. He believes I have enough talent to make a go of it as a pro.

“We’ve been in training for a short while. We’ve been down to Pat Barratt’s gym in Manchester and over to Preston.”

Ferguson is two years older and a middleweight with a varied background.

“I was unbeaten both in MMA and kickboxing but I was wasting my talent and I want to make up for lost time,” he told me.

“I haven’t an amateur background but I’ve learned quickly and I’m still learning. I have a toughness from MMA and a good heart.

“I had as many as 12 white collar bouts last year, which is a lot, winning 10 on the bounce.”
