Tayside has a rich tradition of producing young boxing talent – and that is set to continue this season.
One of the hottest prospects is 18-year-old Dundee ABC light-heavy Adam Korczak.
Undefeated as a youth, Adam is now entering the senior ranks and his club, Dundee ABC, has entered him for the Scottish Novice Championships.
He has his first contest as a senior in Perth on Saturday night when he takes on Corrie McCulloch (Declaration 1320, Arbroath) in a show which is part of the testimonial year for St Johnstone midfield man Chris Millar.
Dundee ABC official Greg Menzies said: “Adam is coming along fine and this will be a big season for him. He is a really good prospect who is keen to progress.
“He is building up nicely to his first contest as a senior in Perth and is hopeful of staying unbeaten.”
Another of the exciting talents on show is Fair City ABC youth Norman Hughes.
A little pocket rocket, Norman is pitted against Myles Robertson from Aberdeen.
Norman’s younger brother Thomas is also in action and the other young boxers taking part include Aaron Davidson, Glen Addison and Jake Moir (Fair City) and Dundee St Francis quartet Kieran Hunter, Sam Johnston, CJ Tarbert and Rhys Duncan.
