The airways around Tipperary are spinning with rumours about who is taking part in the “Clash Without The Ash” White Collar Boxing Show at Templemore Arms Hotel on February 15th next. Many people whose faces have never been seen on TV or in the papers will be competing, plain to be seen by the naked eye, in the flesh, as their knobbly knees, hairy chests and bow legs will be exposed to the bright lights of the ring.
Johnathan Cullen fresh from promoting his much in demand CD, will manage his troop against Eamonn Corcoran’s stout-hearted team in what is certain to be a very entertaining star studded show, one not to be missed.
Not to be outdone also in the ring on the night will be some attractive females pitting their wits against each other.
There is great secrecy at the moment about the names of both selections. All will be revealed at the much looked forward to launch date. The one thing we can be certain of is that some have and are suffering from hamstring trouble, ligament trouble – proof positive of past glory and recent very demanding training schedules.
By popular demand, all will be led into the ring by suitably attired very attractive ring card ladies. Secret training bouts have been uninterrupted for some time now ever since the gauntlet was thrown down and it is not certain who threw it down, but what is certain, they both rushed to pick it up!!!!!
The sound of creaking muscles and taut sinews rent the air over Mid Tipperary, as both camps go through their paces.
NOW, some might see this event as some sort of tribal warfare, the organisers say this is a myth and nothing could be further from the truth. All taking part will be prepared to the last ounce and will be operating in a very disciplined, dignified and scientific manner, showing the full repertoire of professional ‘ring-craft’. You must be there to see both the male and females wriggle their way out of tight corners, to see their dazzling footwork and moving like butterflies. Their unbelieveable head-weaving will be moving with the speed of sound and the punches thrown will have the same effect as a sting from a wasp.!!
A show not to be missed – no doubt about it.
Could this be the start of the “Gathering” in these parts?? Come and see for yourself.
