The atmosphere was electric as 10 potential boxers stepped into the ring for sparring rounds in Geraldton’s SkyBox Studio’s Rumble 3.0.

Rumble 3.0 is a six-week training program designed to provide a safe and supportive environment for novice fighters to gain experience that culminates in a night of competitive sparring.

The event gave participants the chance to showcase their skills, build their confidence and connect with like-minded individuals in the boxing community.

Many of the participants had never sparred before and learned the fundamentals of the sport before they progressed to more advanced techniques.

Rumble 3.0 is a crucial stepping stone towards competing in the novice titles at the end of the year.

But it was also a chance to come together to support those who are pursuing their passion for boxing by serving as a fundraising event, with proceeds helping the gym’s fight team travel interstate and attend national competitions.

The night itself was a celebration of the hard work and dedication of the participants, with friends and family coming together to cheer on their loved ones while coaches and fellow boxers offered support and encouragement.
