Here we go again - great to be back.

Beagle - there are some who may not like the style of this forum as it goes against the grain of the normal we have seen over the years - have to say I am having difficulty getting used to is and am honest enough to say I don't quite like it yet.

But - we are back where we all started!!! - made a big decision in starting this place up again - a lot of lessons have no doubt been learnt.

I join you in wishing the Owner (Robert  Waterman) and Editor (Clive Bernath) and the team in making this place a success.

I am assured message boards of this nature are the way forward - we have to embrace change and lets go for it.

Come on guys get posting your thoughts - why not start your own topics!!!

good luck with the new venture guys, im not sure if i like the lay out, which forum are trying to attempt to hijack traffic from, or is this just a pilot scheme with no obvious early ambition and a 'see how it goes' attitude.

Thanks for the comments and keep them coming, this is part of a bigger plan it is not really a forum but a community system. We hope to rollout new functionality and enhancements that will hopefully make sense and interest you all while trying to improve the system. If after a while of bedding in and adding the new functionality and community systems you still do not like it we will listen to you and revert to a standard forum system but I hope when you see all the new functionality you will appreciate what we are trying to dobut it will take a while

I quite like it, just wish they were a bit more active!

Spud (21 Posts) on Tue 11-Dec-2007:

I am still having trouble getting used to the place.

Like the forum make up - but understand the reasons behind this place - however I have to be honest this place will not take off until the improvements come!!! - and I really feel it needs a PHP type of forum.

Nonetheless I will support the place mainly because I like upsetting people.

Former Team GB Head Coach Terry Edwards MBE To Take Up New Post At Rooney’s Boxing Gym In London.
Irish boxing coach and manager John Rooney Jnr. has recruited Terry Edwards MBE, as Director of Coaching and Boxing Development, for his new London based boxing and fitness gym - Rooney’s Boxing Gym - close to the famous landmarks Tower Bridge and HMS Belfast.
Terry, who has insisted that he will still undertake full time coaching duties, will head up a first class coaching team that includes John Rooney Jnr., former Gleason’s Gym New York and Supreme Team Coach Barry Robinson, who is best known as the star of the Million Boxing Style video series, Ben Day, Karol (Carl) Ozimkowski and Darren Hamilton.
In addition to coaching Terry will also be developing world class training programmes for Amateur and Professional boxers as well as specific courses for White Collar Boxers and those just wishing to use the pugilistic arts as a way of getting healthier and fitter.
On the announcement of his new position Terry briefly said "After a period of time to reflect on my future having received numerous offers from different organisations and countries I have decided to take up the offer of John Rooney as the Director of Coaching and Boxing Development at the London based Rooney’s Boxing Gym.
I look forward with excitement and optimism to the new challenges the position will provide in the future.
With the combined expertise of John, a well respected and knowledgeable professional trainer and my expertise in the amateur field, I am sure we will forge an excellent partnership going forward.
Rooney’s Gym provides excellent facilities and welcomes all in the boxing fraternity with a friendly atmosphere. Rooney’s Gym can be counted as the premier boxing gym not only in London but also in the World."
Terry Edwards is without doubt British amateur boxing's greatest and most successful coach of all time. Terry started his stellar England and Team GB career in 1986 as London region coach, he was promoted to Senior National coach in 2001, Performance Director in 2005 and in 2007 became Great Britain Head Coach.
Over the years Terry has guided the cream of British professional boxing, such household names as current Super Middleweight World Champion Carl 'The Cobra' Froch, undisputed Cruiserweight World Champion David 'Hayemaker' Haye and Lightweight World Champion Amir Khan, through their amateur careers.
During his reign as England and Great Britain coach Terry has taken his illustrious charges to three Olympic games, five World Championships, five European Championships and three Commonwealth Games.
His first class coaching and leadership skills netted five Olympic medals, Gold for Audley Harrison (Sydney 2000) and James DeGale (Beijing 2008), Silver for Amir Khan (Athens 2004) and Bronze for David Price and Tony Jeffries (Beijing 2008) as well as a World Title for Frankie Gavin. Terry also guided Bantamweight Luke Campbell to being Great Britain’s first European Champion last year.
In 2004 Terry was voted UK’s sports coach of the year and four years later, after masterminding Great Britain's most successful Olympic Games campaign since 1956, was deservedly awarded the MBE in the New Years Honours list 2008 for his services to sport. Whilst not quite the same cachet as being awarded an MBE he also received a special award from the boxing sports writers in 2008.
John Rooney Jnr., who also manages British Featherweight Champion Martin Lindsay, spoke briefly of Terry and the new gym before flying to Bulgaria where he plans to create a state of art Boxing Camp for Professional, Amateur and White Collar Boxers. "The plan basically is for the gym to be the main Boxing Gym in London, if not the UK.
We’re really proud that Terry Edwards’ is coming on board as he brings a wealth of world class coaching experience. He coached the British team for the last three Olympics and during that time established himself as the most successful British coach ever. Terry is the best coach around and Rooney’s will be the best boxing gym because of it.
There’s a real buzz around the gym, everyone seems to like it. It’s not just the members or staff, Frank Maloney came over to have a look around, he liked the place and wants to use it, We’ll be doing a lot of work with Frank."
Rooney’s Boxing Gym, located on Holyrood Street, London SE1 in the building that formerly housed Gleason’s Gym London, has been completely renovated and features two full size boxing rings, a bank of heavy, reflex and speed bags. It also has a fully equipped weights room and exercise suite. Not wishing to restrict the facilities to just boxers the gym also features an MMA, Dance, Yoga and Exercise room and Mr Rooney is currently in the process of adding a Steam Room, a Sports Massage Centre and a second Exercise Suite to compliment the already excellent facilities available.

Wednesday 30th September ‘09 Is Judgement Day For London’s Boxing Bankers

No, I’m not predicting yet another crisis within the banking and financial services industry, well I hope I’m not. This particular Judgement Day, which will be held at the recently opened Cable Club London on the 30th September ‘09, is in fact a rather interesting, or should that be intriguing, White Collar Boxing event being organised by Rooney’s Boxing Gym.

What makes ‘Judgement Day’ different from other White Collar Boxing shows isn’t that this event is a truly international affair, having already attracted weekend warriors from Brazil, Israel and Australia sign up to take part, or that it has an all female bout on the card or even that Great Britain’s most successful Olympic coach ever, Terry Edwards MBE, is training some of those taking part, any of which, under normal circumstances, would be a headline attraction. The main reason ‘Judgement Day’ will go down in the annuls of history is that it will be the very first White Collar event to feature a Mixed Martial Arts White Collar bout.

Gianluca (Rio) Di Caro, publicist for Rooney’s Boxing Gym, spoke about the upcoming ‘Judgement Day’ event and what prompted the decision to include Mixed Martial Arts, “We are all very excited to be showcasing ‘Judgement Day’ White Collar event at the superb Cable Club, on the 30th September, as it is without doubt one of the finest venues in London. We envisage this to be just the first of many events we will be holding at this first class facility.

What can I say. We expected to have a good response from those wishing to participate in this event as White Collar Boxing has become so popular. However, even we were surprised that we received so many requests from people all around the world. We could have made the event just from those, but have decided to limit  the international element for this event though, to just Tal (Israel), Plinio (Brazil) and Nathan (Australia), as we are planning to hold a UK versus The Rest Of The World White Collar Boxing event in the very near future.

It’s already a well known fact that Rooney’s Boxing Gym is a firm supporter of Womens Boxing. So as you can imagine we are particularly pleased to be featuring an all female bout as part of the Judgement Day event.

On the subject of Women’s Boxing, we applaud the IOC for their recent decision to include Women’s Boxing at the 2012 Olympics right here in London. With Womens Boxing starting to really take off in the UK we feel that the British Womens Boxing Squad are likely to add to the Team GB medal cache.

Talking of the Olympics. We are exceptionally proud that Great Britain’s most successful Olympic boxing coach, Terry Edwards MBE, is on board and will be heading up all future White Collar Boxing coaching here at Rooney’s Boxing Gym. We are expecting that the quality of the boxing at ‘Judgement Day’ will be of a very high standard as Terry has already been working with some of those taking part on the 30th September.

We are all rather excited to be the first to include Mixed Martial Arts in a WCB event. I have to say though it wasn’t originally our intention but his all came about after the BanDogs MMA organisation started training out of Rooney’s Boxing Gym. Word started to get around the City that we were doing Mixed Martial Arts training. Not long after, when the posters went up in the gym for Judgement Day, some of the City boys that were training  at the gym asked if we would include Mixed Martial Arts at the event. We sat and thought about it, and after the BanDogs boys said the K1 class could safely be done in a boxing ring, we decided to include one, maybe two exhibition bouts in the show.

‘Judgement Day’ will not only be one seriously great all action show but will also be the standard that all future White Collar Boxing events will be judged.”

White Collar Boxing originated in New York in 1988, when attorney Dr. Richard Novak and Dr. David Lawrence, who held a Phd. in English,  took part in the very first White Collar Boxing bout. After the contest the two Gentlemen went to dinner to celebrate the birth of a new sport.

White Collar Boxing was introduced to Great Britain some fifteen years later, in 2003, by the very same promoter of the historic ‘Judgement Day’ event, since then White Collar Boxing has been the fastest growing corporate contact sport in the world.

Judgement Day, at the Cable Club, on the 30th September will consist of eight 3 x 2 minute round Male White Collar Boxing bouts, one 3 x 2 minute round Female White Collar Boxing and either one or two 3 x 2 minute round K1 Mixed Martial Arts.

Judgement Day will be held at the Cable Club, Bermondsey Street Tunnel, London SE1 3JW on Wednesday 30th September 2009. Doors open at 7.00pm.

Tickets are priced £30.00 (unreserved) and £50.00 (V.I.P.) and are available from Rooney’s Boxing Gym, 895/896 Holyrood Street, London SE1 2EL  or call 020 7403 6113
